      Hi MeAmor22,

      I don't think pushing here is the best option because you are likely to lose value from his <TP hands as there are not many Jx left so you should be targeting that part of his range.

      I'd bet 20 cents on the flop going broke on any turn. He is also likely to shove himself with a draw anyways.

      Best regards.

      your line is fine, do not push directly from the flop.

      think about what is calling you when you push directly from the flop: overpairs to the board, Jx, A :spade: x :spade:

      you have 2 J, the other one is on the board, so not many Jx hands for villain to have here

      overpairs would have likely 3bet pre

      and what remains are the A :spade: x :spade: hands which are not that many

      think about what he is pushing when you just bet the flop rather than shove it. He shoves a wider range because he has the impression most likely that he has some kind of fold equity(although we know that with his stack size this is not true)
