      Hello. UTG is huge fish I limped because of big implied odds if I hit. My problem is a TAG with stats 15/15 agression 3.5 which reraises me on this drawy board. I don't think that he often has flush draw here to play such agressive style when he knows I am looser and more agressive it's more likely he already has made flush or two pair. How to play this hand correctly? Thanks.

      Tbh, I would just fold 23s OOP pre. You will have hard times extracting value even if you hit something and that something will rarely be the nuts, so it may still be too complicated to play it profitable.
      I think you have to either 3bet flop or fold. Calling is bad as one more :diamond: on turn will totally ruin the party, there is no way for you to improve more and he did raise you, so that TAG is willing to fight for limped pot.
      His preflop range is basically all deck except top of it, so he may have 54/A4/A5/44/55, there are a lot of flush combos, but if you say he can't raise KdX ever - bad for us. I think overall you have about 30% equity at the best case scenario and way less in worst cases.
      Just my humble opinion.

      3bet that flop. Your hand can never improve and you beat anything but a flush.

      I think I´d b/c flop, c/c turn and c/c river
      If he has there flush, you don´t loose all your stack
      he can easily bluffing with K high flushdraw, so better keep in his bluffs than force them out and your hand is strong enough to go to showdown
      if you c/r turn, not really too many worse hands would stack off there
