      I obiously dont want to give up on this hand but shoving directly here is not correct is it? What sort of raise can I make vs his stack that isn't efectively AI anyway? Should I just try making it someting like $4, then getting it in on any turn card?

      Known players:

      Stack
      UTG:
      $10.2
      UTG1:

      Hero:
      $10.25

      Nh in my opinion. We have such great equity (2 overs, a gutshot and a nutflushdraw) that we can get it in against any2.

      If he has a valuehand I prefer getting it in with better equity on the flop, if he folds some kind of made hand like JJ - great! We made him fold a lot of equity.

      So against most Qx+ hands the result will not change whether we shove or raise small, but against some made hands the shove looks stronger and therefore we have more foldequity.
