      Pre Flop: ($0.06) Hero is BTN with Q :spade: Q :club:
      1 fold, MP raises to $0.18, 1 fold, Hero raises to $0.48, SB calls $0.46, 2 folds

      Flop: ($1.18) 8 :club: 6 :diamond: K :club: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.12 all in, SB calls $1.12

      Turn: ($3.42) 9 :spade: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      River: ($3.42) 4 :spade: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      I was really not sure what to do after the flop came. Any bet basically commits me and there arent a lot of worse hands in his coldcall 3bet range that pay me off (AK is obviously calling me here, and i dont see anyone reasonable calling me here w/ 77, 99-jj, or AQ. Maybe AcJc..). I was thinking about betting small and make a crying fold to a shove, but given the stack sizes that seemed too weak.
      Checking back seemed like a bad idea since the board is still somewhat coordinated and i'd hate to give a free card here.

      Why do you 3bet so small? 3x is more rule than exception with any hand worth 3betting.

      On the flop I would shove as a cbet because any other line is allowing our opposition to bluff us out and we don't want that. AK would go all-in preflop, and we block KQ

      Best regards,
