      PokerStars - $0.05 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      UTG: $10.70
      MP: $2.88
      Hero (CO): $4.91
      BTN: $10.03
      SB: $4.95
      BB: $0.32

      SB posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.05, MP posts DB $0.05

      Pre Flop: ($0.12) Hero has A:club: T:diamond:

      UTG calls $0.05, MP checks, Hero raises to $0.30, fold, fold, fold, UTG calls $0.25, MP calls $0.25

      Flop: ($0.97, 3 players) 4:diamond: J:spade: K:club:
      UTG bets $0.10, MP calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.60, fold, MP calls $0.50

      Turn: ($2.27, 2 players) 9:spade:
      MP checks, Hero bets $1.45, MP calls $1.45

      River: ($5.17, 2 players) 6:heart:
      MP checks, Hero checks

      This time after I raised his small donk bet, I believe I should have checked behind on turn and again check/fold river, if Q doesn't hit...

      Or I should have just folded to donk bet on flop since it's a multiway pot?

      you have gutshot+ overcard so I don´t mind flop raise, but I would also check back turn and fold river.
      On the turn 9 you can´t be really ahead of anything and he won´t fold to your turn bet Jx or maybe even AQ and if he shoves you have to call because of pot odds

      Hello rorrlsh,

      On those limits you don't have much fold equity anyways, you can consider just Calling on flop for the given odds and given reason that there is also another guy in the pot. Otherwise just Check behind on turn, doesn't make sense to Bet there, he will Call anyways. Plus if you raising on flop then do it bigger ~$1.

      Best regards.
