In my quest to improve some aspects of my game I've been producing some jems like this one. I guess I just need the public humiliation to stop doing this, so please flame away.

How can you possibly call this raise preflop and then even think about folding on this board?

While not great, I don't think this is a horrible play.

He is doing a stop'n'go with paired board. There is a pretty decent chance your hand is good here.

But fold this preflop and concentrate on being the raiser and not the caller.

I agree, You can't fold on that flop. And I agree again: Fold or raise all in preflop.
He wont fold to a raise often, but with a standard player You will be ahead preflop most of the times, so put him all in while You're ahead.

I actually think this is fine.

If you reraise preflop I believe you probably have less folding equity than hoping he misses and checks.

It's borderline between all three options for me, but I don't think your line was bad and it was possibly the best.
