      You played that hand fine.
      There is no point re-raising on the flop, since you not might be ahead and if UTG has A :club: K than you´re flipping. Better wait for turn and then call shove or shove if none club comes.

      I wonder if you can even call this preflop? His stack is too small to go for set value, so maybe reraise or fold there?

      Problem with re-raising: what to do if he pushes?
      If you re-raise 2,4$ and he pushes, you´re getting 2:1, which should be call, since he could push with AK or TT
      If you just call pf, then you don´t call for set value, but also you have good enough equity, since you´re often ahead.
      If this was 6-handed table, then re-raising is definetely correct and then calling the shove, but here I´ll rather like call pf and then deciding on the flop if I want to play for stacks or not.
