      I thought 3bet/shove was better than call his raise because this shrink my stack size and I had some FE if I shoved.
      Moreover, 1 over + fd seems strong.

      Is it profitable play?

      Hi,

      In general this should be a profitable play with reasonable FE at each step and a good range overall. However, think of alternative lines sometimes. Your draw is best when it has folding equity so if on this flop you get floated often, you don't have that FE yet. Will you have it later? What about check/raising flop to get in as much money as possible on the flop alongside with taking down a bigger pot. I would often use this line and add some of my made hands here to get value. What happens is people put you exclusively on a draw and when your range is nutdraw with over + good made hands, your range owns them pretty hard yet they don't notice it.
