      Raise more pf (you are OOP)

      Raise at least $5.5 on the flop. The villain is a loose aggressive and aggressive post flop and he seem to be a good player. With the pot size and your stack I don't see him raising so much on that board without some monster draw or a made flush, and you are way behind, so I will fold. That is not the spot that I'm looking to go broke with TPTK.

      vs. Td9c you have 44.24%
      vs. JJ you are dead
      vs. Td9d you are very very dead

      Best regards,

      I think bet/shove is fine, against passive player b/f is probably the better option, since he´d re-raise with flush or set.
      Against 20/20/3 I like b/shove more than b/f.
