      IMO, raise for value on flop, you have monster draw

      Well, I think the best way to play it at micro-stakes would just be to shove on him actually.

      It's quite likely he has some decent hand when he c-bets pot on that board so you probably don't have much fold equity with a normal raise his range, which means you'll end up getting jammed on a lot and you'll be the one forced to call it off.

      If you shove yourself, you actually might get a chance at getting him off better big flushdraws and some overpairs, which people won't fold to a normal raise. Since your hand is so strong, you don't mind seeing the board roll off you'll win more than half the time, and at the same time if he just folds right there you're fine with it as well, since you have 8-high for time being.

      Hope it helps.
