      Fold or squeeze preflop!

      AJo plays pretty bad OOP, even more so 3way.
      And in this spot even if BU didn't call you can't call because you're dominated against MP1's openingrange.

      Hello K6ngsepp,

      Turn: Don't like your play at all on turn? I mean after his raise why do you donk it? And why do you make it 1/2 pot size bet. :( If you want to donk it then make it properly. Rather just Check it and reevaluate further actions.

      As played
      River: Don't really see any reason to bet it here, just Check/Fold it.

      Best Regards.
