      As the player stats are over a small sample size i had to assume that With the action preflop i was probably up against big pockets and maybe an AK but was i right to push? and am i around 35% to improve over the turn and river?

      preflop is ok, you get good odds for set value.
      Flop: you hit your set, but board is quite ugly. I think donking here is not so good option, because you can expect a lot of action behind you, and probably get enough odds to call. after donk and this action, shoving is correct.
      I would check/shove here.
      Against flush you are 34 - 76 underdog. Against some looser range (overpairs, lower sets and flushes) you are ahead about 70 - 30.
