      BTN shows 7:diamond: 7:club:
      (Pre 19%, Flop 54.9%, Turn 66.7%)

      Hero shows 5:heart: 4:heart:
      (Pre 16%, Flop 36.1%, Turn 28.6%)

      UTG shows A:heart: A:spade:
      (Pre 66%, Flop 9.0%, Turn 4.8%)

      Hero wins $11.56

      While this turned out well, I'm not sure if I played it correctly.BB was a nit so I thought pre was ok being at least 4 handed, maybe 5.

      UTG 19/16 , BTN 17/14

      Can I shove over the button's flop raise, or does the fact he can have so many better flush draws than me make it bad?
      I expected UTG to shove and I have enough equity v a set when BTN shoves, but how often can he show up with a better flush draw that puts me in a bad spot? I'm not 100% sure how to analyse this hand.

      Hi Chang,

      Preflop: The call is marginal here because our hand rarely flops strong draws. Even in the case we have in front of us our flush draw is weak and even our straight draw is on the weaker end.

      So folding preflop would not be a mistake especially with a shorter PFR.

      Postflop: As played we can expect better draws to be in play. We can also expect made straights (89) especially since BTN called after UTG+1.

      So what you would need to look at is whathands would BTN raise UTGs small cbet and then shove over his reraise.

      I'd say that you are looking at sets, 2p (76), some made straights, and possibly strong flush draws like AJ/AQ. It's also possible that BTN may have an overpair like JJ or TP like AT.

      Then you take all of these into equilab and find your equity.

      If all of our outs would be live then we would be in good shape however that's hardly ever the case in such spots.
