      Hand converted with online hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A, Q.
      MP2 calls $0.05, Hero raises to $0.25, CO folds, BU calls $0.25, SB calls $0.23, BB folds, MP2 calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($1.05) 8, Q, 2 (4 players)
      SB checks, MP2 checks, Hero bets $0.75, BU raises to $2.00, SB folds, MP2 calls $2.00, Hero raises to $5.46, BU calls $3.46, MP2 calls $3.16(All-In).

      Turn: ($17.13) A (3 players)

      River: ($17.13) 4 (3 players)

      Final Pot: $17.13.

      Results follow:

      MP2 shows a flush, king high(Ks 7s).
      BU shows three of a kind, queens(Qh Qc).
      Hero shows a flush, ace high(As Qs).

      Hero wins with a flush, ace high(As Qs).

      MP2 is huge fish (66/3 over 80 hands) so does he donate enough money to make it profitable against a set which we are almost always up against, cause BU is 27/20.

      Here, if we expect a set every time (Although i'd say you can add some combos of in AA/KK as they might not raise preflop here as to keep the MP2 fish in), we have about 30% equity against BU, and by shoving we basically have 0% fold equity since we're assuming BU has a set and MP2 is calling with almost anything. We can almost say we're "calling" here when we shove, and getting it in whilst we have a lot of equity.

      So if we assume we're "Calling" our remaining stack ($5.46) and have 0% fold equity, then we're calling $5.46 to win a total pot of $17.13. Since we only need 30% equity here to breakeven i'd say it's the right move, although calling would have been fine as well :)
