      MP2 was 21/14/3 and not folding very often. I had a history with him that he 4b me and I 5b shove J9s and he called with AA. Since then he was a non-believer in me :)
      BU was 55/19/8.

      Preflop: I called IP since I wanted to play pots with MP2 deepstacked. BU made a small squeeze which seemed very fishy and since MP2 called I stuck around for some action.

      Flop: almost a dream flop. I checked because I expected BU to cbet 100% of times.

      Turn: an A was a bad card so I tanked not knowing what to do. BU's calling range included JJ+/AQ/AdKd and may some random Adxd. I was considering between a c/c or shove but I decided to shove as AK/FD would probably take a free card.
      In retrospect, c/c may be a better option because he could shove all his bluffs and I would isolate myself vs draws/hands that beat me.

      turn spot is really tough, it really depends on how many speculative suited hands BU can have.

      Equity on the Turn
      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      AQ,KK,AA,QQ,JJ,AJ,KTs,AK,KQ,AT,Td9d,Tc9c,8c9c,8d9d 50.29%
      QhJh 49.71%

      I think c/c is probably slightly better.
