      0,01/0,02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.99 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with K:heart: , K:spade:
      UTG2 raises to $0,08, MP1 folds, Hero raises to $0,24, 5 folds, UTG2 calls $0,16.

      Flop: ($0,51) Q:club: , T:heart: , 7:club: (2 players)
      UTG2 bets $0,42, Hero calls $0,42.

      Turn: ($1,35) 3:diamond: (2 players)
      UTG2 bets $0,82, Hero calls $0,82.

      River: ($2,99) 3:club: (2 players)
      UTG2 bets $1,04 (All-In), Hero calls $1,04.

      Final Pot: $5,07

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      UTG2 shows a full-house, queens full of threes (Qh Qs)
      Hero shows (Kh Ks)

      UTG2 wins with a full-house, queens full of threes (Qh Qs)

      His raise/call preflop could indicate hands like 99-QQ. So it isnt quite unlikely that he has hit trips on the flop. Also he donkbets after his call to my 3bet! So should I fold here immediately on the flop? If not: When should I give up this hand (which is not exactly trash, after all)?

      many thanks in advance,

      Hello jockel80,

      On those limits the opponents are even capable easily doing that with just AQ type of hand and maybe even with a draw. Therefore I'd likely just raise it up right on flop or if he really has been rather very passive and not donking that much then might make the crying fold, although I think I wouldn't do it. Just get it in on flop.

      But as played if you Called the flop then rather no point to give it up, likely ship the turn.
