      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3:
      $18.75
      CO:
      $51.51
      BU:
      $27.16
      SB:
      $25.10
      BB (Hero):
      $41.81
      MP2:
      $32.41


      Preflop: Hero is BB with K, A.
      MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $1.00, CO calls $1.00, BU folds, SB calls $0.90, Hero raises to $5.00, MP3 calls $4.00, 2 folds, SB folds.

      Flop: ($12) 6, 4, 3 (2 players)
      Hero ???

      Villain is 48/33 AF 1.1 after 20 hands.

      How do I play this? If I cbet 1/2 pot I am commited. If i bet 1/3 and he ships I can fold, but if he spazzes w smth like AQ, KQ I am making a huge mistake by folding(no confirmed reads yet).

      I think although the sample size is small we know he's a fish by his stack size, my opinion he could be calling your 3bet with any pair, ax, kx, qt suited yada yada. I think you should bet half, if you get reraised and he does have something like 77 - qq you still have 25% to get out of jail

      Shove flop.

      You have there almost always two overcards even if he has some pair that he would not fold, also backdoor flushdraw + you might easily be ahead.
      If you don´t shove then I would choose c/rao line to induce bet hands that I´m ahead (basically all broadway hands and some suited connectors)

      best regards,
