      Pre-Flop: A:diamond: Q:spade: dealt to Hero (UTG+2)
      2 folds, Hero raises to $2.50, MP1 calls $2.50, MP2 calls $2.50, 4 folds

      Flop: ($8.75) 6:heart: Q:diamond: 2:diamond: (3 Players)
      Hero bets $6, MP1 raises to $18, MP2 folds, Hero raises to $53.80 and is All-In

      Villain was 14/5/7.

      I was pretty close to folding this but maybe that's because I'm feeling nitty because I just moved up. I ultimately shoved because of his crazy AF.

      What would you accomplish by shoving?
      Maybe flushdraw would call, but I believe that all Qx hands would fold and only two pair or sets would call.
      Calling oop is fine and if he has high af, then go c/rai on the turn.
      Or if you believe that he can fire multiple barrels then c/c turn, c/c river- but NL 50 players often won´t fire 3 barrels even with high AF.

      +1 To peeling, even if a diamond hits the turn u still have the redraw to the nuts.

      U guys calling him down then till the river?

      But then most likely we are calling down a set or not?

      Think with KQ he isn't gonna bet anymore on the flop after your flop call.
      And with a flushdraw he probably takes a free card also.

      Or are my thoughts totally wrong?
