I think the shove is perfectly fine on a draw heavy board.

I think a shove is good. AK and QQ-TT are unlikely (possible, but not likely) because noone raised pf, and those are the hands that scare us. We are ahead of about 15 different pair+draw hands, plus JT. i think this is fine. Not to mention random flush draws that could be played like this.

I like your line since the board is so draw heavy.

Any raise would be awkward, and I'm not folding this hand here, so I see no other play than push. NH.

nh, cut out any cards past your play next time, so the thread is shorter.
