      Shove flop, as played. I had folded that hand pre-flop against his 4-bet.

      Hello helliaspapas,

      If you want to continue preflop then get it in, you can't really Call and hope to hit a set. You wont play your hand profitable this way. :) Nor I don't really understand why you don't Bet the flop whilst it's one of the best boards you would like to get.

      Though I'd rather recommend folding it preflop without even knowing much about the guy.

      Best Regards.
