      Hello belayd,

      Preflop: You are getting perfect odds, therefore I don't mind the Call at all here.
      Postflop: I might even prefer just Calling and trying to get the BB as well into the pot. Just the problem with shoving is that we are representing a very strong hand with it and might make some hands to fold which would otherwise Call. Plus there ain't that many draws.

      Best regards.
