      Not sure what would be better play with such hand, calling is not an option imho, maybe raise to smth like 3x initial raise? But then pushing gives much more FE, so i'm confused a little. Any thoughts?
      Thoughts on MP is that he's TAG or at least something close to that don't know if good but at least bet sizing seems ok, so mostly i think he holds here overpair.

      Do you really want that much fold equity? You want to get it in at the flop. So i would recommend to a normal raise here to let villain the chance of shoving hands against which your ahead.

      If you don't like variance because this is a very marginal spot your shove is ok to generate biggest possible fe.
