      PokerStars 8500+1500 - NLHE Tournament (STT, 9-man, regular) - 100/200 Blinds - 3 players

      Hero (BTN): 3395 (17 bb*)
      SB: 2076 (10 bb), (47) VP:39 PFR:0 AF:0.5 3B:0 AS:0 FS:50 CB:0 FC:0 WS:47 W$:90
      BB: 3529 (18 bb)

      bb* = adjusted blinds for antes

      Preflop: (300) Hero is BTN with A :diamond: 2 :heart:
      Hero raises to 500, SB calls 400, 1 fold

      Flop: (1200) 2 :diamond: 6 :diamond: Q :diamond: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets 470, SB calls 470

      Turn: (2140) 7 :diamond: (2 players)
      SB bets 1106 all in, Hero ???

      Obviously i have an easy decision here, but my question is about my decision on the Flop.
      I tried to buy-out the pot to hit my nut flush with a bet of 40%.
      After the game, i realized that i get many calls here because of the monotone board.

      Should i just shove the flop, i have 70% odds on 7bb eff?

      Having position i would probably just check and get a free card, you have a pair of 2 who has some showdown value and you can improve to nut flush. Shoving flop could be also a possibility but i will consider this if i'm oop. When you shove flop you are not betting for value but you are semi bluffing, so due to his stack i don't think he folds any diamond, Qx or some hand that is trapping.

      Cumps ;)

      Shoving the flop would be to much and you have the nut flush draw.
      If you shove you get only action of better. Now it worked well that you hit the flush on turn.
