      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3: http://www.pokertracker.com

      BB: $2.70
      UTG: $0.48
      UTG+1: $0.95
      MP: $2.02
      MP+1: $2.50
      Villain (CO): $1.71
      BTN: $1.94
      Hero (SB): $1.62

      Hero posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero has 6:club: 6:heart:

      fold, UTG+1 calls $0.02, fold, fold, Villain raises to $0.10, fold, Hero calls $0.09, fold, fold

      Flop: ($0.24, 2 players) 3:diamond: 3:heart: 3:club:
      Hero checks, Villain bets $0.12, Hero raises to $0.36, Villain raises to $1.61 and is all-in, Hero calls $1.16 and is all-in

      Turn: ($3.28, 2 players) 2:club:

      River: ($3.28, 2 players) J:heart:

      CO shows A:heart: K:spade: (Three of a Kind, Threes)
      Hero shows 6:club: 6:heart: (Full House, Threes full of Sixes)
      Hero wins $3.07

      I decided to push all-in as I thought he was more likely to have a good hand like AK, AQ, AJ or KQ, and that he went all-in because he wanted to bluff/protect it. Otherwise, I think he would have rather slowplayed by calling if he had a high pair.

      I also checked on the probability chart that there was 26% chance he had a better pair than mine, but I didn't see him raising PF with less than TT, which reduced the probability to 15%. He didn't give me good pot odds, but I decided to take a shot.

      Was my reasoning correct and my move right, or have I been simply lucky?

      I think call is generally better, since very often if you c/r flop and he shoves, he usually has there bigger overpair than yours. But if player can really shove there AK then c/r for value and calling shove is fine
