      NL Holdem $0.05(BB) Replayer
      SB ($6.39)
      BB ($4.14)
      UTG ($6.92)
      Hero ($5.07)
      UTG+2 ($1.23)
      MP1 ($4.92)
      MP2 ($5.81)
      CO ($7.27)
      BTN ($2.63)

      Dealt to Hero A:spade: A:club:

      fold, Hero raises to $0.20, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, SB calls $0.18, fold

      FLOP ($0.45) T:club: 4:spade: Q:club:

      SB bets $0.22, Hero raises to $0.75, SB raises to $1.28, Hero calls $0.53

      TURN ($3.01) T:club: 4:spade: Q:club: J:diamond:

      SB checks, Hero checks

      RIVER ($3.01) T:club: 4:spade: Q:club: J:diamond: 8:spade:

      SB bets $1.50, Hero calls $1.50

      Opponent unknown, don't know should I consider his flop play as very strong. 1/2 pot donk bet usually is some kind of draw. He beats me here with QT, 44, TT, and not very likely QQ. Calling his small 3bet on flop is normal I guess, since I have A:club: . J completes straight draw, also QJ improves, don't know is he capable for that play on flop with TP. Decided to check behind and call up to 1/2 pot bet on the river if it's blank.

      Hello koosMaras,

      Actually I'd more often consider folding on flop while such a way to play the hand is usually a trap and rather a strong hand than a draw. Although as you called there is not much to change in your play. What did he have then?

      Best regards.

      I wouldn't say that I would fold there directly. I guess if I am planning to continue then I'd basically just ship it right on flop, there is no point in Calling. Either I am Bet/Folding and if I see him rather passive player then we can likely expect to be behind and see this as a trap, although if somewhat unknown then basically rather ship it on flop against a lot of draws and maybe even worse pairs than Call and let him see a free card.

      But definitely one very important thing in this case is to note him down.
