      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      BU (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BU with K, K.
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 raises to $0.15, MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.15, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.45, SB calls $0.43(All-In), BB folds, UTG2 calls $0.30, MP2 calls $0.30.

      Flop: ($1.85) 6, A, 7 (3 players)
      UTG2 checks, MP2 bets $1.85, Hero folds, UTG2 folds.

      Turn: ($3.7) Q (2 players)

      River: ($3.7) A (2 players)

      Final Pot: $3.7.

      The SS was 31/8( 13), mp2 was 40/40 (4 hands) so not a good sample . On the flop when he makes a pot size bet , I thought I was beat because a big % of his range was fitting on this flop Ax hands , pocket pairs etc + a player was already all in. Any opinions ?

      MP2 is just stupid if he doesn't have it there. He is not gonna win anything if he makes worse hands fold and it's unlikely he'll get called by worse.

      Preflop I would 3bet more. On the flop I think he has Ax a lot of times and a set sometimes and just bets it out because the A may well give you TPTK and it would be hard to let it go.

      I think it's fine folding here as he may have a lot of Ax hands in 3bet pot as any Ax is nuts for them and there are not many reasonable draws possible. And as you showed strength by 3betting pre I doubt he will pot it on A high flop with air.
      And betting pre bigger is good idea, I like making it 3x + adding some BB's if there additional callers, but overall as far as it's not minraise or something like that it's fine.

      you see too many times there Ax, so I think I like folding to potsize bet on the flop
      Sometimes it is draws, but if he is doing that often with draws you next time just stack him with AK
