      Is it ok to shove the flop or is it better to slowplay since I have the A :heart: (blocking the nuts flushdraw) and problably no one hit a playable hand on the flop?

      MP = 23/14 in 421 hands - fold to cb = 71% (17)
      CO = 50/31 in 17 hands

      $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Holdem
      5 Players

      UTG ($9.60) 96bb
      CO ($14.16) 142bb
      BTN ($1.95) 20bb
      SB ($16.18) 162bb
      Hero (BB) ($4) 40bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.15, 5 players) Hero is BB A:heart: A:club:
      UTG raises to $0.40, CO calls $0.40, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1.60, UTG calls $1.20, CO calls $1.20

      Flop: A:spade: 2:heart: 10:heart: ($4.85, 3 players)
      Hero goes all-in $2.40, UTG folds, CO folds

      Final Pot: $7.25

      Hero wins $7.01 (net +$3.01)

      UTG lost $1.60
      CO lost $1.60

      interesting. thinking about it i guess checking is best
      when you bet (shove) after squeezing from blinds vs utg your hand looks a lot like AQs+ (at the very least) and vs that perceived range they know they're far behind unless they have the other A, FD or a set themselves.

      when you check you allow them to take stabs since it also looks more like something QQ+. i'd also expect a flushdraw to take a stab at the pot.

      At least check the Flop to see if they just put the money in with <5% equity and then you can decide whether to bet small on the Turn or jam

      You get value from Ax anyway even if you block it but it is pretty hard for them to have a hand calling you
