Hey guys, so here's this question, which I was unsure about...

Which of these both plans would be more willing or better to use?

Plan A) We Re-raise the flop, as we have this top pair bluff catcher... If Villain calls or 5bets, he is doing this with the best hand only, so its an easy fold... When we call, we protect ourselves from tough decisions on Turn/River, where we would otherwise need to hero call, if any High-Card or 3rd tone hits.

Plan B) We use our bluffcatcher and call him, putting him on a flush draw... (but we don't know either he has a draw or good hand), and Turn/River calls are standart, if it bring no 3rd tone... And if it hits Overcard, he would use it for a scarecard too, so we call in hope that he has air?

So I was usually using the plan A and saved from lot of troubles, but I was curious, which of both options is "best"?
