      Not to sure what you were wondering about but what I'd do is:

      Pre Flop: Raise to 4BB (so $0.20). Might have laid down the hand vs the 3bet if the SB had a very low 3bet percentage, as many people only 3bet with AA/KK and sometimes QQ/AKs.

      Flop: Bad flop I think. Leading out was probably correct, to scare someone off by representing a flush. Maybe a halfpot (or even 1/3) sized bet would be best if they seem solid as that would represent lots of strength (obvious slowplaying). As played though, it's definitely close between passive play and your choice in pushing AI. His lead with a standard 3bet could mean that he's missed, again would have to lookat his stats. If his flop cbet % was 90% plus then definitely would your push was correct. If his cbet was <30% then I think you should play passively or even better lay down the hand.

      Hello Maartinss,

      Seems to be totally fine. I'd most likely also consider just shipping it on turn. It doesn't make sense to raise and then leaving less than 1/2 of your stack behind. Nice hand!

      Best Regards.
