Icky...That being said I think you have to fold. You are up againt the big stack with an over pair to a flushy board. I think if you are going to keep playing this hand you need to shove but I think you need to let it go.

I would've liked a re-raise preflop... on that flop though, it gets ugly. Chances are you still have the best hand, but you haven't invested much and it's probably not worth risking your tournament on.

Bad situation since you can't like that flop much, but I think you need to shove here. Think of it like this, if you fold now you'll have 4000 chips, you would have gone from 7100 to 4000 and you could very easily be folding the best hand here. It's a bad situation because even though you might have the best hand if he has a big flush draw then he has a lot of outs to win, he could make a flush or hit his overcard. Of course he might even has K10 or A10 with no flush draw and think he has the best hand now. This is HU so it's very unlikely he has a flush here, he might have an overpair (which also is just unfortunate for you) but I think he most likely has the Ace of club or king of club. So even though it could be a tossup situation I think you should shove since you would have lost almost half your stack if you fold.
