      BB shows a flush, queen high(Q J).
      Hero shows a flush, nine high(7 6).

      BB wins with a flush, queen high(Q J).

      I seem to have a problem with raising instead of calling. I`m thinking of a way to stop re-raising with medium hands.

      I figured my two outs for the nuts were good against his probably Ace high draw, set or even two pair due to high VPIP.

      Some stats, but only 15 hands. Don't really know if they're relevant.
      VPIP: 46.7%
      PFR 26.7

      I'm figuring i played fishy too here, but i'm still thinking he's a fish for not thinking: "hey, maybe this guy shoving has some Ace high flush."

      To fold you really have to be sure that he has higher flush, but there's no way you can be sure bout that unless he's passive nit. His minraises doesn't really look like sweet lollipop, but I would raise even more, like 0.6+ and definitely go broke. He can shove sets, AcX and who knows what else.

      since bb only has 50bb it is easy all-in consider pot sizes, the strength of your hand and that he would likely get all-in also with two pair/set/straight and high card flushdraws
      I´d bet out flop 0.4$ or go for c/r
