      The main problem is that if we're beat right now we're drawing stone cold dead, and I don't really expect to be able to see a showdown for cheap after he raised such a flop. Even if we're ahead right now tho, we can still get outdrawn by stuff like KxQs for the win or for a split. With SB in there as well possibly having stuff like AxJs or even set himself, I don't really envision too many good things happening for us 3-way on later streets.

      So, either we believe CO to be capable of raising less than a flush there a good amount, and we probably have to just 3-bet right now hoping they all go nuts with a random royal flushdraw, or we don't, in which case as sad as it is it's probably better to just fold, rather than coldcalling CO's raise with SB possibly overcalling and having to face 2 more streets 3-way possibly drawing dead.

      Hope it helps.
