In a league game, without a made hand, I absolutely cannot shove the flop.

I have a pot equity to call of 280/1040 (26.9%) and with only 9 outs, my hand only has 18% equity to the turn from the rule of 4 and 2... due to this, in a league game, I must fold to the flop bet as I expect to lose 8.9% of my chips every time that I call.

If this was a cash tourney, I'd shove the flop, but NOT in a league game.
