This is a 3-bet pot and you gain a lot from getting him to fold ax 67 etc etc and even if he doesn't fold we're generally still fist pumping. To give you some perspective, we're less than a 3;2 dog if he has top set and the nut flush draw.
Yeah, raising is fine, particularly if this opponent 3-bets wide, I'm just saying that when he does call a big raise we're probably going to be behind his range, mainly because although we have a huge draw, we don't have that many nut outs. Easy shove OOP, but playing in position there's a TON of value to be had by possibly winning a $70+ bet on the turn or river, say when we make a straight and he calls with top set, putting us on whiffed spades, rather than just his $12 c-bet + the $8 or so of the main pot that's his.
