      Hey excelgeo,

      I would shove flop. You need to protect from 1 cards flush draws and against made flush you have 4 outs. Against a set you're not doing too good, but I think he can 3-bet many worse hands than set. If I had stats or reads, maybe I could lay down 2 pair here, but not without any of them.
