      Bananafi: 45/9 3bet: 8.3 - 34 hands
      JL.X.B.C.: 18/12 3bet: 0.0 - 33 hands
      maxrune: 41/5 3bet: 5.6 - 44 hands

      I decided not to donk as I didn't want to be reraised since it's 5-way. I wasn't expecting one of the shortstacks to shove, and even less for the 18/12 player to flat.

      Should I have folded as I did? I could've flatted giving me nearly pot odds for my flush draw and I'm almost certain I wouldn't get any problems from the players behind me to act, but I can't say if my draw should be considered strong enough in this case, there is one better flush draw out there after all.

      I guess I was right not to donk at least considering that I was first to act and I had 4 players behind me?

      Hi,

      against shortstacks I would prefer prefer leading out myself and then likely have to call shove, sure Ax hands are in their range, but against Ax you have 30% equity and lead out always seems very strong, so you can easily get decent players to fold weaker hands than AT.

      Pot is big, so taking it down even half the times shows a lot of profit cosnider you just have there Q high.

      Against shove and call I think fold is fine. never can be sure if someone is going to flat with K high flushdraw or set and if you don´t hit flush on the turn would you then fold after putting in 40% in your stack in 125bb pot?

      Best regards,
