What would you do here?  I felt that with everybody folding, the A8 would hold up against one or two players.

Kim G calls $1
Player 2 checks

FLOP:  4h 9h 6s

At this point I used my stack to bully the player.

Kim G bets $93 (all-in)
Player 2 folds

Kim G wins $4 uncontested

If you are the big stack, you can use your stack once in awhile for a bluff.
