Hi guys. I only recently started playing poker again and haven´t played a bunch of PLO in the past so bear with me in the beginning while I ask simple questions :).

What would you do in this flop situation?

UTG seemed like one of the better players in this stake, his opening range UTG is 15%. MP was unknown at this point.

My reasoning behind the flop shove was that UTG is a reasonable player so he shouldn´t have too many 33, 55, Q5 or Q3 combos in his hand. He has some QQxx obviously and a bunch of KQJT type things with and without flushdraws. And then there are the nut flush draws, KKss etc. I think he probably donks with most of the hands I mentioned but I´m not sure at all about that. I definitely think he would almost always donk QQxx.

I needed 38% equity to shove and at the time I thought I got it but now after running some simulations am not sure. What do you guys think?
