      You may argue on my pre flop play, but I'm more intersted on my post flop play.
      Do you just call his min raise (which looks pretty strong)?

      No. I re-raise there, cause your hand is the strongest on the flop.

      A gutshot + flush draw or in this case just a straight flush draw gives you a 48% of winning the hand vs an overpair here.

      If your all-in 3bet does not get called down you just pick up a $5.5 pot. And if you do get called down you basically paid $9.7 in order to win a $23 pot 48% of the times. This looks like a +EV shove to me in the long run.

      Well... I hope one of the coaches can actually say if this is right or wrong cause I might have made some huge error here.

      Preflop: Your play here is fine, you get perfect odds to Call.
      Flop: Bet/Shove is a very good way to play here for example if you put the opponent on some kind of AJ, QQ+ hand you get very good equity.

      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 54,492% 54,492% 0,000% 45,508% QQ+, AJs, AJo
      Player 2: 45,508% 45,508% 0,000% 54,492% 8c7c

      Best regards,
