      SB: $2 (100 bb)
      Hero (BB): $2.09 (104.5 bb)
      UTG: $2.04 (102 bb)
      MP: $1.71 (85.5 bb)
      CO: $2 (100 bb)
      BTN: $1.95 (97.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with :Qh: :Ac:
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.06, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.19, CO calls $0.13

      would you 3-bet here? I'm still learning my 3-bet ranges

      Flop: ($0.39) :Jc: :As: :9c: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.20, CO calls $0.20

      nie flop, I go for conti-bet. should I bet even bigger? 2/3 pot instead of 1/2?

      Turn: ($0.79) :9d: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.42, Hero calls $0.42

      I learned that you shouldn't go for 3 streets bet ith top pair always, therefore I checked. Thoughts on that? better bet?
      I guess standart call vs his bet.

      River: ($1.63) :3d: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1.19 and is all-in, Hero calls $1.19

      Don't know it its better here to bet myself or check. I mean I can't fold to his bet so I could also bet myself? Or am I wrong and I should fold to a bet, especially when he shoves?

      thanks for helping me!

      $4.01 pot ($0.14 rake)
      Final Board: :Jc: :As: :9c: :9d: :3d:
      Hero showed :Qh: :Ac: and lost (-$2 net)
      CO showed :Ah: :Kc: and won $3.87 ($1.87 net)

      Yes always 3-bet there

      If you do not go for 3 bets with TP TK than calling an all in does not make much sense I think :)

      I think you always have to bet again here on the turn and maybe fold to a shove but that would be opponent dependent

      Yup, standard 3bet.
      OTF standard cbet and good sizing. No need to go bigger and isolate yourself against super strong range. In 3bet pots 1/2pot cbet is good and you will get your stacks in comfortably by the river.
      OTT I would continue betting. You might not want to 3barrel this hand but you can still charge draws and weaker Ax hands.

      OTR depends a bit on villain. Against more aggressive guys I think this could be called if you play it like this. AK would most often 4bet preflop, draws miss and you might look weak when you check twice there.
