      Known players:

      0.25/0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:heart: , J:heart:
      3 folds, MP2 calls $0.50, 3 folds, Hero raises to $2.50, BB folds, MP2 calls $2.00.

      Flop: ($5.50) 9:diamond: , 5:heart: , 6:heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $7.00, Hero raises to $7.00 (All-In).

      Turn: ($19.50) 2:spade:
      River: ($19.50) 7:diamond: (1 players)

      Final Pot: $19.50

      I think it's clear that against unknown villain, all the money is going in on this flop given overcards and strong draw (we have more than 50% equity against an underpair). The issue is how to play. I felt that checking oop was ok, with the intention of either seeing a free card or checkraising AI if villain bets. After villain puts us allin I still believe we are right to call.
      Any thoughts, peeps?

      I usually just contibet this flop, as if I had a made hand. With a flush and straight draw on board you would bet your made hands strongly. Your line is kinda interesting, but I don't have the experience with those plays. I guess against the right opponent it should be a strong move.

      Shove postflop, you have a monster draw, not a made hand! Do not decrease the strength of your draw by checking and let a free (BLANK) card come off!

      Against unknowns, play straightforward ABC ;)

      I mean you can cBET $3 leaving $4 behind but you are OOP
