I felt that this was a good position to try and get a big bet in to try and get lucky or even hope to be up against a weaker aces or worse flush draw. I don't hate the way this hand was played but am looking for advice or other opinions on how this could have been played differently. Thanks for your help as always.

    Hi Ducttape,

    It's not terrible shoving here, as we are always drawing live, but I don't think we can expect to be getting stacks in vs. worse aces without some read that the villains are ginormous fish. The click back min-raise can be a fish-tell of a big hand, and the button cold calling should bring concern as well. That being said, I don't mind getting it in here vs. 2 villains. The made hands that stack off the flop should all be ahead, but the potential to catch one of them (particularly the button) with a dominated draw compensates for this to an extent. Calling is a better option deeper stacked imo, but here I don't care for it as much... there'd be about $1 in the pot and the button with only a pot sized bet left roughly, makes for an awkward turn spot on non-favorable turn cards.
