      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.25/$0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BU (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BU with A, K.
      2 folds, CO raises to $1.75, Hero calls $1.75, SB raises to $8.25, 2 folds, Hero raises to $24.00, SB folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $10.5.

      I tried to play smaller pot IP Vs deep stack pre-flop and didn't 3bet him because I want his bad/dominated hands to play post-flop.
      I can also have some shove-down value against his hand.

      Also to trap an aggressive 3bettor. Both players behind me most likely 3bet not /cc.
      I think this play is OK to use, but what do you think about it?
      Another question is: What is more profitable - to 3bet or /c/4bet sqz?

      CO stats:
      Hands: 258
      VPIP/PFR: 36/26
      AF: 2.0
      ST: 50

      SB stats:
      Hands: 62
      VPIP/PFR: 31/25
      AF: 3.0
      3bet: 12.0

      4b to 33bb max with 48 bb you're never in bluff.

      Your play is perfectly fine and reasonable since you will be happy getting it in versus the agressive SB which will 3bet super wide there and also you got position to out play the CO.I think if the CO had called you get great odds to shove in their faces as I don't think anyone of them is showing with a better hand than yours or at least a flip with a lot of dead money in it which is reasonable for your shove.

      shove is better than make committing 4-bet
      he can fold there some pp-s, like TT/JJ
      And you´re pot committed anyway postflop
