      Hello veriz and thanks for posting,

      the preflop action is ok, you can check it out at starting hand chart. But you got called by 4 people which created enormous pot. It's even bigger than your stack at the moment, so the only thing you can think of here is a push. Dividing your (smaller than the pot) stack into two even smaller parts does not make sense.

      Shove flop.

      Good luck at the tables!

      Oh, it's a must! You have only one oponent and are the preflop aggressor, which means continuation bet is mandatory. Also, your stack is way lower than the pot size - you're commited. AND you have 2 overcards + gutshot, which can mean about 10 outs.

      You can experiment with pushing directly after a preflop raise with AK, JJ+ (I'd recomment it with stack lower than 20BBs).
