      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:

      Preflop: SB has A, K.
      MP2 calls $0.25, 2 folds, BU raises to $1.25, SB raises to $4.50, BB raises to $5.21, MP2 folds, BU calls $3.96, SB calls $0.71.

      Flop: ($15.88) T, 5, 8 (2 players)
      SB checks, BU bets $9.00, SB raises to $19.79, BU calls $10.79.

      Turn: ($55.46) J (0 players)
      BU gets uncalled bet back.

      River: ($55.46) J (0 players)
      BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $44.67.

      This was quite an interesting hand for me. I did modify that a bit to show it from SB perspective.
      What do you think about the SB line?

      What about shoving preflop? Truth is that SB has an easy call (3BB only) and can easily re-evaluate on flop.

      As played pre flop, can SB find a fold on flop with nut flush draw and two overs? I don't think so, because of this (I consider BB fishy, dunno about BU):
      SB: 42.134% 38.03% 04.11% 467695 50508.67 { AsKs }
      BU: 33.953% 30.22% 03.73% 371714 45870.17 { TT+, AKs, AKo }
      BB: 23.913% 22.51% 01.40% 276852 17246.17 { 88+, AJs+, KQs, AQo+ }

      But obviously SB has no fold equity because BU (after his smallish cbet) is comitted anyway.

      Wouldn't it be better to donk-shove? However, with the donk-shove I think only better hands will call.

      you can´t fold your hand on that flop
      so that leaves if you want that you´d have fold equity against BU which means you can shove all-in or you want worse hands to come along.
      I think best way there is likely maybe to lead out to 8$ and shove any turn card or open shove on the flop to get fold like 77 or maybe even Tx
