      Raise bigger on the flop. Its draw heavy and you don't want anyone to draw for cheap! Make it about $1,2. With 1,2 you can easily push on the turn.

      That played I like more betting $1 and folding to a raise. With the shove it will be hard for worst hands to call.

      This.

      On the turn as played given the stack sizes you can't really bet/fold against BU ever and probably not against MP1 either, since he's 48/4 and liable to have anything. I think shoving is just the best of all bad options and we have to go with it.


      Hope it helps.
