      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q, K.
      5 folds, CO calls $0.50, BU raises to $1.00, Hero raises to $3.50, BB folds, CO calls $3.00, BU folds.

      Flop: ($8.5) 7, 9, J (2 players)
      Hero ???,
      Turn: ($23) J (2 players)


      River: ($23) 3 (2 players)


      Final Pot: $23.

      the CO and BU were big fishes 45/10 and 47/18 respectively so i think KQ was ahead of their ranges by far
      i was also considering to shove before the flop which would have been better i think because i will miss the flop a lot

      here the fish floped the nutz :D

      If bu is 47/18 I would be more inclined to shove preflop. with 40/10 is close since 10 PFR is a reduction of like 45% of the 18% and is pretty tight

      As played I would shove with GS+OC, you need approx 33% FEQ to be profitable here ;)

      I like your play I think a "bet and go" is better here beacuse they are big fishs and if you do go all in they maybee fold a hand like QT but if you raise 33-45% of you stack they are more often going to call and gamble.

      And beacuse they are going to call with hands like that they are going to fold the flop sometime and that is very bad.

      But when you make the bet and go you should push all in 97% of the time if you flop monster vs a fish it is probably more +ev to check and let him hang himself.

      Or if you have 33 and flop is AsQsJs you can check fold.
