      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      UTG2:
      $4.04
      MP1 (Hero):
      $4.17
      MP2:
      $5.82
      MP3:
      $4.41
      CO:
      $3.69
      BU:
      $4.00
      SB:
      $1.57
      BB:
      $4.58


      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with A, Q.
      UTG2 folds, Hero raises to $0.16, 4 folds, SB calls $0.14, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.36) T, 2, 2 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.17, Hero raises to $0.44, SB folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.53.


      Altough it worked was it correct to play the hand in this way, i think he was defending his sb, or he had small PP, so i thought the 3bet will scare him, maybe its not smart cus he was short stacked? I was reading some article about the donk bet, and 3bet bluff so i just try it :s_cool: was it correctly played my tactic, can it work in the long run?

      Hello Filipstan,

      That means that if we raise there, then we also have to play for stacks, therefore I might give him respect 1st time.

      Best regards.

      I shouldnt 3bet here even if I had feeling that he would fold?

      Postflop it's 2bet, it ain't 3bet anymore but as I said, it's totally fine to raise him up there, since his donk is very weak there also his sizing ain't that great and he might fold, but our plan is to go broke, if he shoves since we have already invested that much.
