      Hi, at NL5 a standard raise after 1 caller would be to .25 - the .42 is a little excessive at just over 8bb.

      Calling the 3bet oop is rarely correct in my opinion but others will say differently. Effective stacks mean you are just about getting the odds to setmine but again you are oop so there is no guarantee you can stack villan if you hit.

      The donk bet on the flop is ok - it could be considered a blocker bet, and it worked here as he only called.

      The pot is $2.74 on the turn and you bet $13.57 ????? I would personally consider this a slight overbet. At this point in the hand you have the 3rd nuts and ideally you want him to put as many of his chips in the pot as possible. The only hands that are going to call your shove are QQ or 33 both of which have you beat and possibly AA, or KK.

      I would suggest a smaller bet of perhaps $1.80 - $2 hoping for a call and then look to bet 2/3 pot on the river.

      This is just my opinion - I'm sure others will have theirs.

      Fagin mentioned already some points.

      Raise less preflop, then it would have been much easier to call the 3bet.

      The donkbet is quite small. If you want to bet, bet half pot. It is a paired board in a 3 bet pot.

      Turn: No need to overshove. You want him to call with a hand where you are ahead. With this overbet you will fold nearly everything.

      Best regards,

      Move to hand evaluation area so you can get some coachs/hand judge advices :)
      But, both guys have pretty much summed it :)

      Hello bobiq,

      Preflop: Too big raise, ~$0,25.
      Flop: Too small CBet ~$1,30 would be mine.
      Turn: While you hit the FH doesn't mean that has there as well a very strong hand which is going to Call. I don't like the shove, I'd bet like $2,20.

      Best regards.
