      Should I be value betting the Flop or is my shove good protection? since the board is very draw heavy and could be up against like AKs in the flush draw etc.

      Hi,
      when you hit strong hand usually you want some value.What hand in your opinion can call such bet? other sets,KJ,monster draw? I think it's very fishy play,shows that you are very scared on this flop. So bet big on flop ,pot size or nearly pot size 1.75. You have very good equity in this spot and always have 3.8:1 odds to hit full house.

      Hello samlar,

      Nah, I wouldn't push there ever, even if we have such board, from what do you expect to get Called from? A draw wouldn't Call such a push ever, unless he is way too loose or has some combo with some kind of pair. Just bet potsize or ~$1.70 and hope to get Called.

      Best regards.
