      I think the push on the flop was not a good play, because the opponent is a reg, he raises from MP, and cbets in such a wet bord, he probably has a good hand, after our raise on the flop I think he can fold hands that beat us like TT,A9,A8,A6,K9s,55,44, and 3bet with very strong hands like JJ, QQ, KK, AA, 88,99,66. So I think it's better to call his 3bet because we need 20% equity and we have 19% equity with 9 outs, + we are in position and have good implied odds

      Preflop is close since I doubt that we stand good against his MP opening range.

      I think raising the flop is fine. We have two overcards and a nut FD, so he could easily fold here.
      Once he 3bets, I don't think that shoving is too bad, since even against sets we have decent equity.
      I think the calling option is good as well, since we have position plus we are given quite good pot odds.

      Overall, I wouldn't mind both shoving and folding since due to his sizing I think we can have some fold equity here.
