      i feel i played this hand correctly. i felt he was on a draw or Ax/Kx.
      was i correct to shove or should i have tried to extract more value?

      hi,

      pre-flop + flop are ok.

      Why do you shove the turn? you bet twice the pot size which is way too big.
      It's better to bet 2/3 PSB (0.22 here) and go all-in if you get raised, otherwise you shove the river.

      Your goal should be to get called with worse hands and any draw is a worse hand than yours, so you should just bet 2/3 of the potsize for value(which btw is more than enough for protection, because villain doesn't get good implied odds on you as you don't have a full stack) and every time villain will call you he will make you money, more than if you would overbet shove and make him fold his hand. So, just bet ~0.25$ on the turn.
