  4. I like preflop as played. Keeps the pot down and you're in position with a decent hand. I would bet about 14K here and that probably pot commits you. Post flop is tough with your stack but I like a bet/call shove line here and hope the overpair is best with the action pre. Zach has a wide raising range with his stack and Lion's call makes me think this flop missed him. My guess is that they both fold to a bet here anyway.

    Shoving flop is not a bad play either by any means, just not sure if I make that play here.
