      MP2: $2.23
      CO: $1.95
      BTN: $5.99
      SB: $1.98
      BB: $1.20
      Hero (UTG): $2.71
      UTG+1: $2.00
      MP1: $2.16

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is UTG with 9:heart: 9:club:
      Hero calls $0.02, 2 folds, MP2 raises to $0.10, 3 folds, BB calls $0.08, Hero calls $0.08

      Flop: ($0.31) 8:spade: J:club: 6:diamond: (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.23, MP2 folds, BB raises to $1.10, Hero folds

      In the BSS guide, it is recommended to donk bet (bet/fold) a medium made hand without position, if I recall correctly. That's what I did in this hand, but had to fold after the check raise of the villain.

      Is this play correct? Thank you.

      Hello Elertar,

      Most likely I would have played the same way, with Check/Call you wont find out where you stand, Check/Raise in multiway pot we might just put ourselves into trouble and Check/Folding is anyways a bit too weak while there might even be worse pairs/draws. Also as we Bet it I don't see how we can continue either, we most likely are beaten. Nice hand!

      Best regards.
