      I usually fold this hand,but to make my FOLD TO 3BET % lower,I called .
      but fold was better?
      on the flop,BB called,so I didnt go broke .
      but if its against only short stack BU head up,should go broke?
      if I put BUs range on AA,AK,KK,QQ,AQ,my equity is 34.39%

      How does getting your fold vs 3bet % lower help your game? You should think about playing a hand in order to increase your OWN EV, not to aim for certain stats.

      On the flop, what is your equity against both players? If you call pre and fold your flushdraw with these odds when both players can have strong hands such as TPTK, 2 pair and sets is clearly a waste of money preflop. Either you can call pre and continue here or it's just a preflop fold. Given positions and low ranks of your cards I think it's preferably a fold, and maybe call a hands like 89s or better. You flop better pairs, straight draws and better flushdraws.

      You don't need to get it in on the flop when you get good enough drawing odds even if there is <pot left on the next street.
