      Guy is 19/8 over 100 hands, so decided just call and not raise for pot control. Bet size on turn looked kinda weak, so decided to start building pot and defend against any draw

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      MP2:
      $0.37
      MP3:
      $2.51
      CO:
      $7.38
      BU:
      $1.05
      SB (Hero):
      $2.00
      BB:
      $1.69


      Preflop: Hero is SB with A, Q.
      MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.06, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.05, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.14) T, 3, A (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $0.06, Hero calls $0.06.

      Turn: ($0.26) 6 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $0.06, Hero raises to $0.20, MP3 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.32.

      Hey,
      There is no need to ch/raise on the turn. It is better to call down and get value from worser or not to pay of better so big.

      Hello shivas80,

      He will likely just fold a lot worse hands there, rather just donk yourself since he mad such a small bet on flop or even Check/Call.

      Best regards.

      I decided to take the donk on turn for the reason that usually such a small bet on flop indicates to a weak hand and might have something like GS or whatsoever. Which he might sometimes just Check behind and we wont get value from, while we still get value from weaker aces, Tx and as well draws when we donk. :)
