      Rush; no info on villain but that he is not fullstacked=>fishy
      Donk/min-raise smells like a nuts hand. I think I'm up against set straight 2-pair and stuff.

      Easy fold?

      I don`t play rush, but if villain is not auto re-buying that puts him automatically on a fishy side in my book. Yes you will be facing twopair and sets from time to time but against an unknow it is always best to push, board is super draw heavy + you do have a backdoor fd =p =) and I think you gain more value from draws in a long run.

      I always muck in this spot. I also play rush and think their ranges for this kind of play is usually a set/str8 and sometimes a draw which still has decent equity vs your hand so i like to muck it here.

      That sucks. Against his overall range you're beat. So fold it is.

      It's probably a fold, but I never fold this either. Sometimes I'm right, most of the time I'm not.

      if you decide to fold then don´t really like raising to get information and then folding to small 3-bet. True you´re beat very often there, but if he shows you smt like AT that he is 3-betting for value or some flushdraws you´re making very big mistake. So if you want to play for stacks this flop then raising is fine, but then shove if you get 3-bet
      You always have option just call and play turn and river. This way he can bet/bluff with worse hands and you see showdown
