OTF: Hero? CALL, FOLD, SHOVE? Not sure why the replayer is showing that hero wins $5.98, please ignore that part.
I would often think that I have 2 overs and 9 clubs? 15 outs and fold equity if I shove?

Hey dirt,

Pretend that you held KK instead of KcJc... how would you play it in this spot?

Your aggressive action choice for a semi-bluff certainly has fold equity I would expect, but which choice is optimal might be the one that mimics how you would actually play a premium pair here, since that's what you'll be repping.

It might be to 3b to 12, and shove the turn if called. It might be to flat call the raise, and check-shove blank turns. It's probably not to 3b shove all in as that looks a lot like a draw, not a premium pair.

But whatever the case may be, if you're going to rep a big pair, do it just they way you would if you held that hand.
