      UTG ($12.90)
      MP ($11.25)
      CO ($14.30) 37/22/3.3/38 ST: 30%(20) Steal from CO: 43%(7) 81 hands
      Hero (Button) ($10.00)
      SB ($12.00)
      BB ($5.00)

      Preflop: Hero is Button with J:diamond: , A:diamond:
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.40, Hero raises to $1.20, 2 folds, CO calls $0.80

      He is stealing so much, that i decide to 3bet with AJs. I think this may be a mistake. Better 3bet something like 98s, that is not easily dominated here. Or is 3betting AJs in this spot ok?

      Flop: ($2.55) K:spade: , K:diamond: , A:spade: (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $1.60, CO calls $1.60

      Not a bad flop for me. I hit my A. But he c/c.

      Turn: ($5.75) 2:club: (2 players)
      CO bets $11.50 (All-In), Hero ?

      He pushes and sets me and my rest of $7.20 All In if i call. What now?

      Your 3-bet is fine, but make it 2$ on the flop, since 1,6$ could induce bluffshove and not sure if you want to go all the way with your hand.
      River: I see now reason calling overshove with top pear middle kicker.
      Although it seems strange co often has here Kx.
