      I decided to 3bet/call preflop. I think the sizing is ok vs. 6x open and his stack.

      On the flop? I can shove, but i thought it`s better to call here and call most turns if he shoves there.

      On the turn i made a small raise to get some value from his Jx/ Kx/lower PP. I think it`s better than shoving?

      On this river? I get a good price, but i don`t think he has any bluffs?

      Hey AchillesBG,

      I think your preflop line is a little too aggressive vs a mid-stacked MP 6x open. I would flat and play a pot in position, or even fold if he normally opens for smaller.

      Flop - I guess you are priced in. I would try and get AQ high to showdown and flat.

      Q is somewhat co-ordinating. I'd probably just make a committing raise immediately even if it wasn't an all-in, and then never fold any river.

      As played, I guess you have to fold river.
