      BB: $10.94 (109.4 bb)
      UTG: $10.85 (108.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with A K
      CO posts BB OOP, UTG calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.60, 2 folds, SB raises to $2.10, 2 folds, Hero calls $1.50

      Flop: ($4.50) 8 6 T (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $2, SB raises to $6.97 and is all-in, Hero folds

      Results:
      $8.50 pot ($0.56 rake)
      Final Board: 8 6 T
      Hero mucked A K and lost (-$4.10 net)
      SB mucked and won $7.94 ($3.84 net)


      villain is 18/14/4.6 over only 51 hands. Is a shove or call more profitable here?

      And should I have checked behind on the flop?

      Hi Tommy,

      Preflop: Why are we calling a 21 BB 3-bet when villain only has 91 BB? Our hand rarely ever flops anything so if we like it simply 4-bet and get it in.

      Otherwise we should just fold the hand.

      I would say, that given the positions we can consider folding. However, we then look at the fact that there is dead money in the pot (CO posting and UTG limping) and I'd say that shoving is the better play.

      So I would shove.

      As played bet/folding flop is fine.
