      raise that flop every time, maybe warrant a fold on later streets

      Actually I think about this hand quite backward.

      Really depends on what you put in his flop/turn betting range and whether you think he has worse hands often enough to warrant you making a hero call down, because really once he bets nearly pot on the turn I don't believe you'll get a free showdown on the river very often.

      I'd probably fold the turn barring a read that he's overly aggressive with flushdraws/top pairs, and as played I'm nearly always folding the river barring a read that he's psychotic.

      Given all that I don't really like raising the flop when you don't know what he's doing, since if he had top pairs it's probably the best way to get him to slowdown, if he has a set he'll jam it on us, and if he plays flushdraws aggressively it's quite possible he'd also jam those, which makes make a big mistake against his composite range no matter what option we choose after raising.

      Hope it helps.
