      MP rarely open raises, so I don't think I can 3bet. Should I donk flop? I have tptk, flop doesn't look like any of the opponents could've hit better. I was check folding river.

      Hello staktas,

      Well, then I would ask you if you Call the turn then what do you beat on the turn what you don't beat on the river? :)

      Myself I would most likely be towards donking the flop and protecting my hand and then reevaluating further actions.

      Best Regards.

      Yeah, when flush draw hits, I usually tend to freak out, and do something stupid, and don't really think about, if it's even logical, that he's holding the draw.

      There's practically no diamonds or Q in his range. Well, maybe overplayed JQ.

      Just take a deep breath and always try to ask yourself those questions. :) Don't snap-act.
