      Full Tilt, $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold'em Cash, Rush, 6 Players

      UTG: $25 (100 bb)
      MP: $23.63 (94.5 bb)
      CO: $57.04 (228.2 bb)
      BTN: $28.19 (112.8 bb)
      SB: $25 (100 bb) unknown
      Hero (BB): $26.12 (104.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q K
      4 folds, SB raises to $0.87, Hero calls $0.62

      Flop: ($1.74) 5 A 4 (2 players)
      SB bets $1.21, Hero raises to $3.20, SB raises to $6.50, Hero raises to $25.25 and is all-in

      Preflop: I am a bit wary that he opens 3.5x. Could be a strong hand, or could want to maximise fold equity out of position. I decide that call is fine and that 3b would just fold out worse and isolate me against better.

      Flop: with my NFD I have approx 37% equity against top pair (if I see both streets). Villain's 3bet is quite small, so one option is to call and hope to hit. This is horrible on a blank turn though, and I probably will not get paid much if the obvious 4-flush arrives. On the other hand, a shove only makes sense if I think I have some fold equity. Do we think that villain can sometimes 3bet/fold this flop? His 3bet size seems strangely small for protection (maybe he thinks I am bluff-raising a scary board and he is trying a cheap rebluff?) and leaves him room to fold, so I decided to shove.

      I dont like raising this nut flush draw unless u are willing to shove over a 3bet. And that requires very aggressive flop dynamics (with u bluff raising a ton and villain playing back a lot vs u).

      Villain's value range is mostly sets and flushes and u have way less rhan 35% equity vs such a range.

      I prefer calling and we always have the option of double floating and bluffing river. I would slowplayany of my stronger flushes and sets some of the time too so i think we can stil rep a ton of monsters.
