As Unibet does not allow exporting hands, and it is impossible to copy/paste from the hand history I used printscreen + OCR...

Initial raiser is a TAG that is aware of his position.
Re-raise is a bit less then 3x as I have position.

Reason I checked the flop is because it was 3 ways...
Heads up I probably would have C-bet.
Let me know what you think.
I'll post the outcome of the hand later on.

Checking back the flop in a 3-bet pot heads up or 3-ways with KK on an A-high flop is pretty standard for a couple of reasons (1) you get worse to fold (under pairs) and better to call (Ax), so you can't bet for value and (2) you can induce bets with worse hands sometimes on the turn.

I would call turn for a couple of reasons (1) villain's sizing is really small and you could have the best hand. Kh is betting turn, sometimes QQ and JJ.

*** showdown ***

DonnieDarkol shows [QsQc] a pair of Queens
target1000 shows [AcQd] a pair of Aces and wins


So fold was correct in this case, but I could indeed call the small bet next time
