      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.10(BB) Replayer
      Hero ($14.10)
      UTG ($10.34)
      CO ($12.05)

      Dealt to Hero J:spade: Q:club:

      raises to $0.20, UTG calls $0.20, fold, Hero calls $0.10

      FLOP ($0.60) 6:spade: Q:heart: J:heart:
      Hero bets $0.45, calls $0.45, UTG calls $0.45

      TURN ($1.95) 6:spade: Q:heart: J:heart: K:spade:
      Hero bets $1.50, raises to $2.91 (AI), UTG calls $2.91, Hero calls $1.41

      RIVER ($10.68) 6:spade: Q:heart: J:heart: K:spade: A:club:
      Hero checks, UTG bets $6.78 (AI), Hero folds

      Ok, so

      1) how much do we bet on the turn and do we look to get it allin?

      2) Once the shorty shoves, can we find a fold, considering that the other guy will be playing with less than 7$ for a 10$ pot and might very often shove on the river putting us to a tough decision

      As played, river is an obvious fold..

      Stat wise both guys seem fishy. Hand sample is way too small for any detailed analysis postflop.

      Preflop is a 3b or a fold. OOP QJ sucks.

      Bet flop is fine.

      On the turn with 2 players to act, just play ch/f. Turn card completes many SD and too many hands (straight + set + better 2 pairs) had you cushed. You might be even drawing dead (say against a set of Ks).

      As played you should still fold when UTG calls the SS AI. It looks like he wants to give you good odds to call. Don't be trapped.

      I think you played your hand fine
      you can´t really fold if shortstack shoves, but at the same time I think your hand isn´t good enough to shove yourself
      So I think b/c turn and then c/c blank river is fine
