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
