      Shortstack was pushing AI every hand. MP3 unknown. I thought I got 9-10 outs. I decided to push to maximize fold equity.

      with three players after you to act - fold preflop.

      as played - there is no point to overbet shove, just make 1/2 potbet. overbet shove is like screaming 'hey fold i dont want you in the hand"

      I don't agree. Shortstack and 3 other players after me have a random hand. KQ against random has huge equity advantege:

      equity win tie pots won pots tied
      Hand 0: 28.638% 27.62% 01.17% 1058187 44711.83 { KQo }
      Hand 1: 17.813% 16.83% 01.08% 644784 41218.58 { random }
      Hand 2: 17.848% 16.86% 01.08% 646103 41245.42 { random }
      Hand 3: 17.873% 16.89% 01.07% 647191 41142.50 { random }
      Hand 4: 17.828% 16.84% 01.08% 645313 41273.67 { random }

      I would obviously fold to a raise.

      Preflop is fine I think given the read.

      Flop is pretty bad though, open overbet-shoving is something you should never do. We can often count 14 outs here so it's no question of getting it in or not, the question is how. I think in this situation it is actually best to go for a c/r for a few reasons.
      - If we bet ourselves we're comitted to any turn, and if that turn doesn't help us then we're comitted with not that great equity - not a fun thing to be.
      - If we check, and he checks behind, we get to see a freecard which is not so bad! because we're afterall on a draw here.
      - The pot is large enough for us to get it all in on 2 streets if we hit on the turn if the flop checks through
      - The c/r gives us maximum fold equity obviously, even though there shouldn't be much in this hand - it is also the only way of getting it in here right on the flop without villain raising us (if we bet ourselves)
