      here willain didn't have full stack and after his small 3bet i didn't think I can fold, with a call I would be pretty pot commited anyways, so I decided to shove to avoid hard post flop decisions... was it right approach?

      I think this is perfectly fine. Once you decide to 3-bet you are happy to get it in.

      Getting AK in preflop is never a big mistake, and is very good if you are playing vs a shortstack.

      Hello Veeziits,

      Welcome to the NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      As you 3bet there against that kind of stack there is no way you can fold your hand. Nice hand and I am also going broke vs his stack.

      Best Regards.
