      i was thinking that it was a way ahead way behind situation and was going to check/call all the way to the showdown. however i thought that the turn action signalled that at least one person had the K and i could fold.

      you get too good odds to fold your overpair and nut flushdraw against shortstacks
      after you check I like shoving flop, since you´re pot committed to any turn card

      @Kaitz20: so is check/shove the best play here against shortstacks? If both players check behind us, what's our play on the turn?

      Since you likely have the best hand and you´re not going to fold, then IO think c/rai is reasonable also you can b/c
      if flop is checked around I would bet 1/2 pot on the turn and shove rest on the river
