      BTN: $1.12 (56 bb)
      Hero (SB): $2.01 (100.5 bb)
      BB: $0.73 (36.5 bb)
      UTG: $0.87 (43.5 bb)
      MP: $1.81 (90.5 bb)
      CO: $2.36 (118 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A K
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.04, BTN folds, Hero calls $0.03, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.10) 3 K 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      Turn: ($0.10) 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.06, CO calls $0.06

      River: ($0.22) 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.12, CO calls $0.12

      $0.46 pot ($0.02 rake)
      Final Board: 3 K 3 4 8
      Hero showed A K and won $0.44 ($0.22 net)
      CO showed J J and lost (-$0.22 net)

      Villain 60/20/0 over 5 hands, 0.5 AF.

      PF: What should I do here? My thought process then was that there's a 36bb shortie BB left to act so I don't mind him calling wide and going to the Flop hoping to hit TPTK and go all the way with him. Vs CO, I can re-evaluate.

      If he 3-bets and CO folds, I will 4-bet shove. If he 3-bets and CO calls, then I will fold.

      As played,

      Flop is dry so I wanted to play check/call to keep his whole c-betting range in. I lead Turn for value. I put him on A high hands and worse pairs which don't dare to bet on the Flop. Also bet around 1/2 pot for him to call these hands.

      Hi cheekopeh,

      Preflop: We should isolate here for value. IF the shortie likes his hand he will go with it anyway.

      Postflop: Your line looks fine but I would look at ck/raising the flop for value if he does bet.
