While I prefer the KISS play, which is to fold pre-, you do have both decent pot odds
and implied odds to call and see the flop on the small chance you'll flop a big hand, plus if you do, it's not easy for the opponents to put you on it. However, a baby flush draw is a long way from a big hand. It's not even a big draw.
Plus when seat 7 pops it, there's 9100 in the pot and it costs you 4800 to call. How are you priced in? You have nine flush outs twice, but since they aren't clean to begin with, and even less so on a paired board, they have to be discounted from full outs.
Also how much fold equity do you have? Basically none. Seat 7 is priced in to call your shove, so you have to hit your flush, and it has to be good.
And who says no one has a 5? You called with 7c 3c, but there's no chance anyone else has A5, 45, 65, even 75, etc. Or 55?
