But given the situation you are in I say raise pot or close to it, as villain is clearly a complete plonewb if he's leading out for pot on a 3flush board on the turn where the best possible hand he can have is J-high flush - he'll probably call with 2-pair
1. The players behind me fold a lot to PF raises --> so raise to buy position
2. I will often raise, but some percentage of the time with nut flush especially when led into I'll give the guy a chance to bluff off more chips on the river. The chance of him filling on the river if he has a set is only about 20% (I have one of his outs if he has a set). Varying your play makes you harder to read. For the small amount I have invested in the pot, the board pairing on the river will not cost me much. Further it may give a 2nd nut flush the confidence in his hand to call the much larger raise on the river.
3. Agree to re-raise but not min raise or shove. More confusing to villain I think.
