      Known players:

      0,1/0,25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A:diamond: , K:heart:
      MP2 folds, Hero raises to $1,00, CO folds, BU raises to $3,10, 2 folds, Hero raises to $11,00, BU calls $7,90.

      Flop: ($22,35) 6:diamond: , T:diamond: , 7:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $15,00, BU folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $22,35

      the flop is not the best for me, but i just discard aces, kings and queens from his range, as they shove preflop (QQ maybe not)
      is a push still correct?

      Nice hand! You're comitted to ship any flop, so go ahead. His play is just about the worst you can do... flat a 4bet. You should definately make a note of this play, because from some people this line means nutz (basically they only flat a 4bet with AA/KK because they're afraid of a fold from a shove), and from some it means they are trying to give away money - there's just no way of separating these two until you have a note about it :)
