      Known players:

      0,1/0,25 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.55 by

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K:spade: , Q:diamond:
      6 folds, SB calls $0,15, Hero raises to $0,75, SB calls $0,50.

      Flop: ($1,50) A:diamond: , A:heart: , K:club: (2 players)
      SB bets $1,50, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back..

      Final Pot: $1,50

      I actually didn't have a made hand and villains very often hold Ax so I decided to fold. Should I consider push in occasions similar to this one?

      I added stats, but I think they're pretty much useless due to small hand count.

      P.S.: I raised 3BB, because I often steal agains SB when opencompletes.

      Stack size is more important than stats at this point.
      Personally, I don't defend my blinds at NL25, too many chum.
      Here I am sticking to the basics and raising 4xBB preflop.
      He flat calls and then donks into A A K board. I am pushing his donkbet. Why would he lead bet trips vs preflop short stack aggressor?
      Your sample size is small, but after 29 hands this guy is obviously a chum. Even if he does have an Ace you can still reload, and he is on your right...
      Folding, of course, is a good play too when you are unsure. If you do shove make a note of what he does and what his hand is. That is, if you are going to pay for information be sure to make good use of it.

      you raise KQ because its a standard raise against SB

      I am not sure how often players on nl25 bluff on a paired board or just donkbet with a small pp.

      i think on nl25 its the best way to play straight forward and that would be a fold because on nl25 is a bet mostly a strong hand.

      on higher limits it would be an easy AI.

      sample size is too low but oponent seems to be a big fish, i'm going broke here.

      your preflop raise is WAY too small

      5bb is the way to go!

      on the flop i would fold
