    I actually don't think shoving is as much of a terrible play as you make it out to be.

    However I think when villain bets on such a wet board, he's normally got a pretty strong holding. I don't think calling is a good option due to villain's short stack.

    I'd err on the side of folding here simply because I don't know the villain, but I think shoving is the 2nd best play, he might well call with two overcards without a draw. Just to put some numbers on this, if villain's calling range is TT+, AQ+, you are 43%. If he only has TT+ and AK+ in his range, you only have 33%. If you put some other flush draws in there, then your respective equities go up.

    So I think folding is best and you only lose a small pot!
