      Is it ok to shove on this dry board? I see it as bluff, because people usually just call on dry board even with sets, and if he has it I still have outs.

      I don't think shoving here is a good idea unless you have reason to believe that he raise/folds here super often.

      Few things to point out here:
      1) This is BvB, I agree that people don't merge raise for thin value with KT KJ KQ too often at NL25-NL100 but it's still possible
      2) We have other options like calling and evaluating Turn.
      3) I think this is overplay with the lower end of the OESD. We lose to 78 which he may have.

      I like calling more especially if I think he plays straightforward on the Turn. Then we can b/c F c/f T.
