BB (31/12/1) and UTG (60/21/8) were limping every hand since stacking up a few hands ago. They'd happily overbet any flop having connected in any way.
Is my shove crazy or his call crazier?

I don't really like the pre-flop call, even when you're getting 6:1. Hands like 75 play so badly OOP.
Donking the flop looks terrible to me. Is that a value-bet or a bluff?
That flop is so damn wet (you could be drawing dead to backdoor boats/quads), and you can expect to get called or raised almost always when 3-handed. Bottom pair here is pracically worthless. It's a check-fold for me.

Hey IBNash

I think that Arty has hit this one on the head.Any other option other than check folding the flop is a big mistake that will cost us a lot of chips almost every time.
