      Raise preflop.
      You're on the BU so you'll be IP postflop. If you were CO or had even a worse position overlimping might be ok, but on the BU your edge is too big to limp.

      As played this is definitely a good shove on the turn.
      There are tons of draws in his range that he's just calling, so you get a lot of value.
      If he actually shows up with a straight you still have almost 25% equity in the pot, so it's impossible to be wrong with the shove - if his range includes a lot of 3x hands there will be even more FDs, Ax and random pairs he'll be calling.

      Board: 5:diamond: 4:diamond: 2:heart:  A:club:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      BU     23.86%  20.45%   3.41% { 44 }
      BB     76.14%  72.73%   3.41% { 43s }

      Hello BGawli,

      Actually I do like even the limp behind there while CO has such a small stack and I don't want to play for stacks. Rather just Call and keep weak hands in play and maybe even extract value postflop. Why to play just against small stack while we can play vs big stacks an IP.

      Best regards.
