      I'm not planning on folding, he just has too little money left. He could have QJ and believe his two pairs beat ours, he could have busted hearts, he could have KJ/AJ. So while it's true he possibly has a straight there I don't believe it's warranted to make a hero fold when they are also so many hands we're ahead of.

      The question is whether we're better of shoving ourselves or going for a check/call, and I think I'd rather jam for two reasons. First off we have no idea whether he's actually capable of bluff-shoving busted hearts, and second this is a board when his flushdraws might have picked up a pair along the way, which he might check behind with to see a showdown (he could have the Th as well but that's another story).

      Hope it helps.
