      $0.25/$0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K, A.
      2 folds, MP1 raises to $1.50, 5 folds, Hero calls $1.00.

      Flop: ($3.25) 5, T, Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 bets $2.50, Hero raises to $10.00, MP1 raises to $24.00

      Villain is 13/10/5.4 in 592h.
      2.7AF / 70 cbet

      The question is, would villain ever 3bet with something that folds?( Maybe a weaker flushdraw, straightdraw)

      How would you play the hand? Why? What options are there?

      I now see donkbetting as an option.

      Donkbet/3bet & barrel turn. What if villain raises then 4bets shoves? Am I always beat and have to fold?

      I would personally 3-bet that hand pf, since he should call your 3-bet with weaker hands and if you´re not 3-betting with Akh, than what value hands do you really 3-bet oop.
      c/r flop and getting it all-in is fine. You have 40% equity against his value hands, so you can´t really make there mistake by shoving over his 3-bet

      board: 5dqhth
      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      ahkh 39.24% 6,992 0
      55,tt,qq,qt 60.76% 10,828 0

      If we add some straight flushdraws in his range, then your equity moves up to 43%

      board: 5dqhth
      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      ahkh 42.95% 8,504 0
      55,tt,qq,qt,jh9h,8h9h 57.05% 11,296 0

      And if player is sometimes 3-bet bluffing on that board planning to fold to shove then you gain a lot of money. Also he may 3-betting kk/AA, then your equity is close to 50%, so you can´t really fold to his 3-bet.

      If you want you can lead out and 3-bet and then call shove, but if money goes all-in on the flop then it doesn´t really matter that much. here youa t least have some fold equity
