      Hi,

      Stats (VPIP/PFR/AF/Hands)
      SB - 23/19/7.0/31

      How do you play after SB check/raises? I though he represented a set of a flush draw... AA or JJ he would likely 3bet preflop; I don't have many hands on him, but he has 18.2% 3bet over those 31 hands. So I expected him to have 66 or a flush draw here, with flush draw being more likely. Thus, I decided to re-raise for protection
      The obvious problem with this play is that after re-raising, I have just over half a pot left, and can't get out, even though the flush hits on the turn. I have a re-draw, which can be good, but I can't be sure
      However, I don't see a better play on the flop. What's you opinion on this?

      Thanks
      Yuri

      players usually are not messing around these boards.
      I think 3-bet is fine on getting all-in against aggressive players.
      Against passive players I like b/c flop, calling turn and then evaluating river
      They tend to have there AJ or 66 too many times
