      Hi,

      I would just fold preflop. I know the hand is suited and have some straight possibilities, but it's just not going to be profitable to call this out of position. Most of the time we will just flop nothing and then it's super hard to win the pot. And when we do hit a pair, we are often up against Queens or better.

      As played I would just fold the flop. Once again, if you check/call out of position it's just going to be very hard to win the pot unless the board runs out good for you, which it seems like it did here.

      On the turn, I think you played it fine. We should not be in this situation, but now that we are I think shoving is fine. We have some equity and he could certainly be bet/folding sometimes here if he likes to 3bet light pre. Versus tighter opponents I would just check/fold even this turn, we don't have odds to draw, and tighter opponents usually show up with an overpair here.

      Also this one of the reasons why 3bettibg in position is softest as players will often call and then c/f too many flops.
