      Pre-flop: (8 players) Hero is UTG with K A
      Hero raises to $0.4, 2 folds, MP2 calls, CO folds, Button calls, 2 folds.

      Flop: 3 3 8 ($1.35, 3 players)
      Hero bets $1.35, MP2 folds, Button raises all-in $2.1, Hero calls.

      Turn: 8 ($1.35, 1 player + 1 all-in - Main pot: $1.35)


      River: 6 ($1.35, 1 player + 1 all-in - Main pot: $1.35)


      Results:
      Final pot: $1.35
      Button shows Tc Th
      Hero shows Ks Ad

      I thought of shoving on the flop then thought 3/4 bet then thought pot size - not to sure what I should of done. Flop looked OK to shove - but he was not going to give his hand up any way.

      This one is from last night - as you can see i do balls up playing AK AQ AJ - is it not best just to go all in on any flop as you are committed if you raised first. The way I played the hand above is TERRIBLE against a big stack. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!

      Even with cocks like this I am making GREAT headway this month - will pop my graph up later :D

      1.) As played you have to call the all-in. Since after your potbet you have $0.35 left, which means you could have pushed from the beginning. After a normal contibet and a push, you have called as well for your Outs for nearly always are good.

      2.) Good.

      1) check/fold
      2) I would likely choose between pushing and check/folding
      don't really like cbetting on this board, you will get semi-bluffed so often
      but according to the strategy, you played it fine
      except for the cbet size, you should make it 2/3
