      CO: $2.87
      BTN: $4.53
      SB: $4.95
      BB: $6.35
      UTG: $10.54
      UTG+1: $15.95
      MP1: $1.76
      Hero (MP2): $12.29

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is MP2 with A :club: K :club:
      1 fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.10, 1 fold, Hero raises to $0.30, 1 fold, BTN raises to $0.60, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.30

      Flop: ($1.37) 2 :heart: Q :club: T :club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1, BTN raises to $2, Hero raises to $7.37, BTN calls $1.93 all in

      Turn: ($9.23) 4 :diamond: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      River: ($9.23) Q :heart: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      Villain is a 32/5/1.3 5% 3bet over 93 hands.

      Is this a good move?

      You have no fold equity there because the button is shortstacked, so you're effectively facing an all in when he raises the flop. This gives you 1.6:1 pot odds.

      Any club except the 2 (7 outs not including the J:club:) and any jack (4 outs) wins for you the vast majority of the time, which gives you 11 outs without even factoring in your overcards. Therefore you are at least 1.4:1 to win with two cards to come and should call his all in (or push).

      Not sure what fryandspicy is talking about as far as BU's stack is concerned, looks like he has a healthy 90bb stack to me.

      I don't think there is any way you're not going broke once you flop so good. You're usually better off check/shoving however, since you usually have no fold equity once villain doesn't fold to your donkbet, so we're usually better off letting him c-bet whatever trash hands he might have if he so wishes, then shove on him expecting he'll fold some of the time and we'll be up against TPGK+ the rest of the time.

      Hope it helps.
