I would certainly fold preflop and Im fairly convinced its not worth calling unless the opponent is particularly weak.

Please dont fold the flop. I like the flop raise. Most villains will fold a large part of their range here and our equity is obviously good if they call.

probly fold preflop. once you get there, flop raise is a must as our equity divebombs on the turn. I think 400 gets just as many fold as 520 and obv its good to save chips, but it also makes our stack less awkward when called so play later in the hand is easier.

if you were deeper it'd be better obv, but the whole chips we win are worth less than the chips we lose thing makes taking slightly +chipEV spots early something we don't want to do. calling pre here isn't standard for me, but i may be a little nittier in the early levels than most. For some reason this post made me think of part one of this post , so I'm linking it.

AL I really thought this might be one of your famous (fake) hand posts, but it is an interesting situation.

Not shallow enough to push on the flop, but not deep enough to raise without committing yourself. I can see some reasons to call on the flop.

I like your raise, you might not get paid off with a heart on the turn if you call here, and you might take it down unopposed on the flop with a raise. Plus sometimes you can fold a higher flush draw with a raise on the flop.

I think if you're going to call preflop, you want to play it aggressively on a flop like this.
