2/2 2nd nut straight+FD in limped pot vs massive overbet

2/2 game in my local Casino, table is loose/passive. 3 players limp to me and I call with 4 6 in the CO. BU also calls.
V in the BB is a 2/2 2/5 Reg here ( 2/5 is the highest limit, very rarely 5/10), probably winning player. He has about 270, I cover.

Flop 7 players: 5 7 8

V in the BB bets 80 ! in a pot of 14 :eek: Everybody folds to me

My play here ? Always shove ?
After a few seconds of thinking I took all my chips in my hand and he instantly moves his stack in the direction of the betting line and said to me something like : "Come on, move all in"

    When he says that, I move in. He probably folds, and it's likely very good for the game when he looks like a dork.

    OH yea.

    I love these spots. I've been studying this for a long time. I got the perfect plan.

    First off put your sunglasses on if you don't want got any, have a waitress bring you one

    Second stare down 45 secs. Good players have an internal clock , over 1 min is showboating and being a douche. 35-45 secs is a sweet spot and shows emotional maturity.

    Third if sunglasses arrived by now put them on. If not by now. Spin around your chair 2 times and then very calmly throw one $1 chip and say all in

    Now way you can ever fold this hand here because even if ev has a higher straight it's impossible for him to have a FD as well. So you got outs.

    Interesting to just call. Think if we had more players behind I can see a call also if this player really bad. Just feel like calling flop , villain gets away from a lot of turn cards while us shoving flop still leaves draws in our rage for him to call wider

    Yes. I guess 96 is in his range, but you can get value from sets, flush draws, and straights you are freerolling.

    He isn't a winning player.

    Just jam imo. This bet just screams of a protection bet. We're also never drawing dead to a chop, as V can't have a straight with a flush draw.

    Thx for your comments.
    So I shoved. He snapcalled and showed 69. Luckily the Q came on the River :cool:

    Note this hand. He is absolutely not a good player and probably not a winner. No winner in their right mind is going to overbet this flop that much.
