I would smoothcall that; if no threatening (draw-fulfilling) card comes on the turn, I would go out and fire again.

push all-in. you have the best hand really often, especially considering the note you have on him. you're out of position and a lot of turn cards are gonna unnecessarily scare you/kill your action

I dont like a smooth call here. Your reasoning being you think you are ahead but worried about a flush draw? why give him a chance to bluff you off your hand if thats the case? If you think you have the best hand you have to push here. This guy could be on a wide range of hands but probably not a set(he has raised 30% id guess any PP he is raising with.) Chances are he has a flush draw or straight draw and just wants to get you off the hand. He also could have two pair.
Do you have any other reads on him? Considering his numbers he is definetely in a lot of pots is this normal action for him? Has he been in a lot of pots but playing weak afte the flop? I would say this is a close one and if you have any sort of info on him I would go by that and either fold or push. Calling I just dont get, it gives him a chance to steal the pot if a scare card comes (or if he hits it) and the pot would be about his stack so any move at all has to be an all in.

Oops. Shoulda pushed or RR's the flop. No way you fold this, but looks like it's damage control time. Check call to the river.

You should have come over the top of his flop raise.

As played, I think the range we're looking at here is T8, QT, 2 diamonds, JX, TT, and pretty looking air. Players like this raise their draws to get a free card on the turn, and he may be checking to see if you're playing on the flop.

I think we need to make at least a ~1/2 pot bet on the turn. Draws make up a decent size of his range that giving a free card is a bad play at this point. I would've preferred to stack off on the flop, but I wouldn't mind getting it in here either.
