      Known players:

      0.02/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.98 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 4:heart: , 4:club:
      MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.15, CO folds, BU calls $0.15, SB folds, Hero calls $0.10.

      Flop: ($0.47) K:club: , T:spade: , 4:diamond: (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 checks, BU checks.

      Turn: ($0.47) 2:spade: (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.35, MP3 calls $0.35, BU calls $0.35.

      River: ($1.52) J:spade: (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.9, MP3 calls $0.90, BU raises to $2.03 (All-In), Hero folds, MP3 calls $1.13.

      Final Pot: $6.48

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP3 shows (Kh Ks)
      BU shows a flush, ace high (As 8s)

      BU wins with a flush, ace high (As 8s)

      Flop- Should I donk here? That would start to build the pot, I think any Kx,Tx, QJ hands call. I did check since I was expecting a cbet from MP3 or at least BU, I didn't have any particular reads on how aggressive they were.

      Turn- Obv bet to protect and get value.

      River- I think that just has to be a flush, so easy lay down right? Especially since MP3 has called and could also have me beat.

      My logic and play ok? Anything I should have done different?

      (I'm also interested in the thinking behind donking on flops, I think it's something I rarely do. When should I be using it?)

      Hello Jeffers16,

      Basically this is one of the cases where I might even consider donking the flop while we are in multiway pot. If they would have any kind of Kx hand they might even raise us and we can play for stacks. :)

      But as played guess it's pretty close but I would as well rather make the crying fold on river. MP3 ain't that important BUT :f_biggrin: , what a hand from MP3, definitely note him down.

      Best regards.
