      Given your stack and pot size - push

      SSS players always think that they are pot committed and push:) To me it is very dangerous board and I would played the same.

      According to the strategy I guess we push here. Personally I agree with Kaitz here. Its a board our opponent most likely hitted with a medium pocket pair, he also could hold some kind of a draw he rarely will fold. He also could put us on Overcards and would call us here, since he can imagine that we rarely hitted that flop.

      mh i still think a push is better... we have two overs, a backdoor flush draw. the pot is fairly big compared to our stack, we are ahead against many draws and can make A high or 22, 44-66 fold

      btw: would you play the hand differently at nl100/nl200 ?

      No. I might would push here with AQ or AK, since then I would also beat every A-high hand, which I don´t with KQ.

      Well, according to pokerstove here we have 25% equity against 99+,A9s+,KJs+,AJo+,KQo which is just enough to call with 3:1 pot odds. Against more loosive opponents push become profitable.

      So considering two points: 1) We have a fold equity and I don`t see how it is possible to miss a conti bet here and 2) even thoug push is marginal it`s not -EV, so in order to get maximum folding equity (from CB) we are correct to push... in my opinion)
