      I would prefer shipping on the flop with a nut fd + 2 overcards against a fish. If he hasn't got a set or a straight then we're even ahead + we're generating loads of fold equity.

      You´re against middlestack who can sometimes make moves on these boards.
      I also prefer 3-betting to 9$ and then shoving any turn card.
      Turn: his turn bet doesn´t seem the strongest, so I think you have fold equity against his one pair hands, so I don´t mind shove. You can also call and then shove/valuebet river if you hit one of your cards
