      UTG folds, MP calls $0.20, CO calls $0.20, BTN raises to $1.20, SB folds, Hero raises to $3.40, MP calls $3.20, 2 folds

      Flop: ($8.30) J:diamond: 6:club: 3:club: (2 players)
      Hero ($7.93)?

      Anon. table
      MP is unknown. BTN is 29/23 over 56 hands

      I think preflop is ok.

      How should i play the flop? He probably has a lot of PP ant they won`t fold, but he might also have some Ax hands or good broadways.

      I can see argument for all options (ch/f, ch/c and shove). What do you think is the best play here?

      Hi Achilles,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I think this one is close. With one backdoor here a shove would be fine (as well as ck/shove). Without the backdoors I think it's closer to a fold without info on MP (although I don't think that shoving is that terrible as we have 20-24% equity usually + FE)
