      SB: $10.10 (40.4 bb)
      BB: $29.51 (118 bb)
      MP: $25 (100 bb)
      CO: $30.82 (123.3 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $25 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with T J
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.50, SB calls $0.40, BB folds

      Flop: ($1.25) J 2 2 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.75, SB raises to $2.25, Hero calls $1.50

      Turn: ($5.75) 4 (2 players)
      SB bets $1.75, Hero raises to $8.50, SB calls $5.60 and is all-in

      River: ($20.45) 9 (2 players, 1 is all-in)


      SB was 25/20/10 over 52
      FtCB: F - 0(2)
      AG% - 63 (60/50/100)

      Should I just shove here? I don't expect villain to raise with a better Jx and he doesn't have many combos of 2x either so it's most likely a semi-bluff with a draw.

      Given this information is it better to shove OTF for max value vs draws or is it better to call OTF and shove over his bet OTT?

      It's close between calling Turn and shoving Turn. But calling Turn definitely >>> 3-betting the Flop. Your kicker is pretty weak and if he's raising a merged range of QJ+, 2X and flush draws, that's not a good range to get it in against.

      Since there are two flush draws, your line is probably best.

      Nice hand.
