      BB: $8.90 (89 bb)
      SB: $6.67 (66.7 bb)
      UTG: $18.56 (185.6 bb)
      MP: $10 (100 bb)
      BTN: $14.61 (146.1 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K K
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.40, Hero raises to $1.20, BTN folds, SB calls $1.15, 2 folds

      Flop: ($2.90) 3 4 8 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $3, SB raises to $5.47 and is all-in, Hero calls $2.47

      Turn: ($13.84) 2 (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($13.84) 2 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      $13.84 pot ($0.69 rake)
      Final Board: 3 4 8 2 2
      Hero showed K K and lost (-$6.67 net)
      SB showed 6 A and won $13.15 ($6.48 net)

      SB 51/2 for 41 hands.
      I overbet the flop as I was thinking he calls/shoves with a range I have enough equity against. However I am wrong I think.
      All sets, all suited Aces, Kings and queens that are hearts, all offsuit Ace combos that include Ace of hearts, a load of suited connectors.

      I have just 27% equity against this range which isn't enough to make this play.

      However if I include the amount of times I take down the pot on the flop does this move make sense?

      Preflop 3betting is fine and I think we could go for $1.3 here.

      I'd bet around $1.9-$2 on the flop and the rest on the turn. I don't like betting so much because it might "scare" him with some hands like pocket pairs.
      When he shoves calling is ok.
