      Just as well it wasn't a big pot :P

      MP1: $2.42
      MP2: $3.55
      CO: $1.97
      BTN: $2.00
      SB: $2.36
      BB: $0.40
      Hero (UTG): $2.38
      UTG+1: $4.27
      UTG+2: $1.49

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is UTG with Q:diamond: Q:heart:
      Hero raises to $0.08, 7 folds, BB calls $0.06

      Flop: ($0.17) Q:club: K:diamond: 9:club: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.06, Hero raises to $0.32, BB calls $0.26 all in

      Turn: ($0.81) K:club: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      River: ($0.81) K:heart: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      Final Pot: $0.81
      BB shows Q:spade: K:spade: (Four of a kind, kings)
      Hero shows Q:diamond: Q:heart: (Full house, kings full of queens)
      BB wins $0.77

      On a more serious note:

      (a) Should I have just called the flop donk bet?
      (b) Should I make a smaller flop raise?
      (c) Was I right to just get it in?

      The way I saw it was, if he flopped a straight, he's very lucky and doubles up, If he's on a flush draw I'm trying to give him as less odds as possible, and if he's on a pair, he's a huge dog. I know with his stack it takes some of these problems away, but is that the way I should be thinking anyway?

      Thanks for any advice.

      Hello PokerPaulh,

      (a) Should I have just called the flop donk bet?

      No point to Call the flop anyways against his stack. Just ship it.

      (b) Should I make a smaller flop raise?

      Nope, doesn't achieve much, just shove directly against his stack.

      (c) Was I right to just get it in?

      Definitely, I'd even get it in there vs full stack.

      Overall, you can't ever get away from this and just a cooler what will happen time to time to all of us. And be happy that he didn't have a full stack. :)

      Best regards.
