      You did well here.

      After the flop you have nothing left to do, you're already all-in :) .

      But assuming you just got called, you need to make a continuation bet on the flop. You have position, so he'll be first to act. Assuming you have nothing and he bets - just fold. You have nothing and he checks - bet 2/3 pot or push directly if the pot's too large (see basic sss articles).

      I guess I should have folded after the bet or just push it all-in?

      2nd situation you should have pushed all-in pre-flop because there was a raise of 40c and a caller.
      Your raise would of been 3 x 40c which is $1.20 plus a limper which is an extra 40c equaling $1.60 which is more than half of your stack.

      I suggest you re-read some basic/bronze articles.

      Yep, you are right about the 3xbet but I just had a bad feeling before the flop and that's why I made the small bet but I couldn't fold after the flop and had to spend all my money and made small mistake :(

      thinking like that and playing differently will only get you in trouble and loss you money.
      Maybe read the mentality articles as well.

      Against a raise and a coldcall preflop with AK we always push :) . No excuses.

      Btw: get familiar with the board rules. Try opening new thread every time you post new hand and use the button that suggest judge to take another look at the thread if you ask another question.
