      i thought that he was very often going to have something like 2 pair or a top pair with a draw there. i thought that i was likely to be a good with the nut OESD and overcards and the backdoor flush draw. how could i have played this hand better? call the flop? lead on the turn? or check call the turn?

      I see 1 overcard I do not see overcard's'.

      Plus if BB had AQ your only overcard is counterfeited. So is the case against a set.

      So you are really just playing for a straight here. 8 clean outs, and if against a set there is always the redraw even if you made your straight on turn. Villain might have already made the NUT straight with KJ so you are playing for a draw with just 3 outs.

      Plus BB's short stacked so there is not much to win with a straight.

      I would fold on the flop here. Against a full stack I might do something different depending on the villain's type. But in general OESD is not a hand to go broke with.

      if he call preflop with 22-JJ it's a coinflip
      but if u add more hands to his range like KJ,AQ+ and others he get more equity

      I think b/c is better on the flop
      You don´t have that great equity against hands that he is getting all-in, so better take your equity and evaluate on the turn
