      You have no other play but to shove the flop really, the hand is too strong to waste it by just calling off a third of your stack to fold on two thirds of the deck on the turn. You have like 45% equity against two pairs/sets/straights. Granted you probably have very little fold equity if any, but you still need to felt that on the flop.

      Don't sweat it, sometimes you just need to take the flips. Oh yea, and don't make such a small raise to begin with, 4x it and call it off.

      Hope it helps.
