      Push it, if he will call you are for sure behind but got 5 outs (kings + backdoor flush) also unless he did hit strong ace, he will fold here.

      Hello mbml,

      I would just check behind and see if he checks again on the Turn but once again, I will save my 12.5bb with TT/JJ on a flop like AKQ .

      If the turn comes any or your King, you can go for the shove but I play it cautiously rather than recklessly

      Best regards,
      Gerv
