      Pre-Flop: T:club: T:heart: dealt to Hero (SB)
      3 folds, MP1 raises to $0.85, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.85, Hero calls $0.75, BB folds

      Flop: ($2.80) A:club: A:heart: A:spade: (3 Players)
      Hero checks, MP1 bets $1.30, BTN calls $1.30, Hero folds

      Turn: ($5.40) 2:heart: (2 Players)
      MP1 checks, BTN checks

      River: ($5.40) 9:diamond: (2 Players)
      MP1 checks, BTN checks

      Would it have been +EV to shove the flop? I had no reads on both players as they weren't in my elephant database and I wasn't willing to risk my stack on such a dubious board.

      You should fold this hand preflop.

      As played I think you should have to push this flop.
      Chance of Villain holding Ax is rather small. The only danger is a higher PP.
      It's probably worth taking the risk.

      Hi mrjorisa,

      I guess you already know calling pf is a wrong thing to do here. No implied odds to play on.

      But, as played, on the flop I'd check/raise it. Only JJ-KK and any ace can beat you so probably go for it.
