      2 folds, CO calls $0.25, BTN raises to $1, SB calls $0.90, Hero raises to $3.50, 2 folds, SB raises to $8.25, hero

      There is no way he will just flat AK, QQ/AA against the donkey, even JJ/AQ i think he 3bets for value. I think he might have something like AQ, AJ, KQ, 99 that got frustrated, im tempted to shove because of the fold equity. what you think?

      when he raises to 8$ i doubt he's folding considering your stack size of 35$.. But as you said, he would raise vs the fish if he had a decent holding. I don't mind a fold or a shove in this situation both have merit.

      SB usually has a hand like TT and lower, maybe AQ here imo. That would be the top of his range in my view. Without folding equity though, I dislike shoving AT because your are behind quite a bit and he value owns himself when you have your value range here.

      I do have to ask though, why 3bet such a good hand when CO and BU are clearly good players to target. You have position on the other competent player in the pot, your hand dominates their holdings. Seems like a pretty good spot to call and play postflop.
