      Hi Theman365,

      In the long run, you want to see the Turn and River for the same price with just 2 overcards. Therefore a shove is here more profitable.

      Furthermore your cbet would have been around $0.7 and that's 50% of your remaining stack approx. If you have to invest approx 50% of your stack, shove directly instead.
