      Hi carrapa,

      I think our hand is strong enough to get stacks in on the Flop. We have 33% equity vs sets, 40% equity vs 2 pairs and 45% equity vs one pairs. If he checkraises and folds, we pick up the dead money in the pot (the main profit in shoving over his c/r comes from the dead money).

      Given that you are in position, you may find an argument for a call. However, I think you are going to be committed on most Turn cards if he shoves. Also, another thing to take note of is that the action preflop was 3way with a 4 BB isoR. So the pot started with 14BB as opposed to your usual 7BB single-raised pots if you raised 3BB and someone called. This means that the stack:pot ratio is much smaller, and there's just less money left behind (that would favour a call more).

      I prefer to just jam it in on the Flop. Nice hand.
