      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      SB:
      $68,25
      Hero:
      $50,75
      CO:
      $73,25

      0,25/0,5 No-Limit Hold'em (4 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.69 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:diamond: , Q:diamond:
      CO raises to $2,00, BU folds, SB calls $1,75, Hero raises to $8,00, CO calls $6,00, SB calls $6,00.

      Flop: ($24,00) 6:spade: , 6:diamond: , 3:diamond: (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $19,00, 2 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $24,00

      I didnt expect SB to fold many hands preflop, so playing him HU IP postflop with such hand was the goal. Once they both called, bet/shove flop?
      What's the optimal line on the flop after SB's check?

      Personally i'd bet 15 on the flop with the intention of checking behind on the turn. My reasoning is you're not getting many better hands to fold with a second barrel on the turn and this way you can still stck him when you hit the flush.
      Obviously calling a shove on the flop.
      but i think you played it pretty well.

      3bet bigger to isolate SB more to like $9-$9.5

      As played bet $14-$19 is okay but if you know CO is aggressive, check/shove against him may also be viable, especially when it goes like this:
      Opal checks, CO bets x, SB calls x, Opal shoves Y

      3-bet pf is fine
      not sure about check/shove, since not sure how often co would b/f there
      I think you gain most fold equity if you bet/shove 15$ on the flop and if get called then shove even ui. Of course if you hit your flush or Q/A you can bet small or check to induce bet from worse hands and you can always shove anyway river if turn goes c/c
