I am not sure if I should flat the re raise here or put in my 3bet. I block JJ and 99, so most likely if he has me beat he has 55, but I do think he will reraise with a lot of draws here like QT and flush draws. What is the best line here? Is flatting better? I size my 3bet to be small enough so he can shove his draws, if I only flat I think there is a chance he can check back on the turn to see free card. I wasn't really thinking this at the time, more that I would hate having to check-fold the turn to a club and maybe get bluffed off my hand if he had a straight draw.

    Looks ok. I'd prefer clicking it back to ~$4-4.5 so we have more than a 1/2 pot shove on the turn.

      I guess this is one of the better spots to 3-bet the flop as there are so many cards that can be tough to play with top two (any straghtening or flushing card). I think your size is fine although it offers many draws the correct price to call one.

        I would prefer to jam over the villains 3bet. Making it $5.60 or $6.00 doesn't make sense with only 100bb as this commits us OTF and if he just calls then we are slamming the rest OTT. If you were deeper then I think this could be okay because we may not be committed. I LIKE TO GET IT IN HERE when he 3bets us to $2.00. Not enough room to do anything else IMO.
