this ones in early to middle stage

Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

pretty straight forward i hit a flop with a lot of draws and made a decision that this hand would get me itm or busted out,it worked out well for me,though i was not keen gettin it in only on a draw with all the action,any thoughts ?
my reason for playing this and folding the set in my other evaluation request,is only because of the stage the tournament was at good or bad play/decision?

Hi milehigh!

To call the opp's flop shove, I'll need to put 10854 into a pot that will be 30108 (36%).
I have 9 outs to the flush and 3 more to a striaght, so 12 outs. For only the turn card only, my hand equity is 24%. Due to the hand equity being lower, I do not want to call here.

If I shove, then I'm guaranteed to see both the turn and river cards, which will double my hand equity to 48%. If anyone calls my shove, I will not have more than 48% invested into the pot, so a shove will be a +EV play.

Due to these numbers, I'm going to shove the flop, instead of calling the first shove and then calling the overshove.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
