      Bet/Shove on the Flop would result in a high variance spot. Kx you are crushed, against A x, you are flipping.

      Given the fact you need 31% but still have an average equity of 30%, I think either bet/f or bet/shove is ok

      srry stupid question how does he need 31%? He as to call $2.75 to win $7.35. It looks like 37% to me. What am i doing wrong?

      $1.6 (FlopPot) + $4.5{EffectiveStack before any betting postflop} + $1.5{cBet} against [[ES -- cBet]]
      =

      1.6+4.5+1.5] : [3]
      7.6:3
      but RAKE = 5% so 7.6*0.95 = $7.22 :: 3 => 2.4 :1 = 3.4^-1 (here is a shortcut btw which I forget every time ) = 0.29 = 29%

      I hope this helps
