      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      CO (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A, K.
      MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.30, Hero calls $0.30, 2 folds, BB raises to $1.40, MP3 folds, Hero raises to $10.15, BB calls $8.75.

      Flop: ($20.65) 9, 6, Q (2 players)

      Turn: ($20.65) J (2 players)

      River: ($20.65) 3 (2 players)

      Final Pot: $20.65.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows high card ace(Ac Kh).
      BB shows three of a kind, jacks(Js Jh).

      BB wins with three of a kind, jacks(Js Jh).

      MP = 21/14 over 99 hands, so pretty tight but not a great sample.

      i think calling vs MP is probably better and i did so with the intention of backraising vs a squeeze. i actually didn't mean to 4bet-ship it, i should have made it ~$3 but hey ho the money was going in anyway...

      BB is unknown: 75/50 over 5 hands. is this play okay if we get rid of the 4bet-ship and replace it with a normal 4bet of about $3?

      Your play is definitely fine.

      small 4b vs all-in

      -Are you ever taking this line as a bluff? If not shoving is probably better.
      -Do you think a smaller raise size gets him to continue with way more hands? If not shoving is better
