      BTN: $12.94 - VPIP: 6, PFR: 6, 3B: 10, AF: 0,8, Hands: 49
      SB: $10.86 - VPIP: 18, PFR: 15, 3B: 4, AF: 4,3, Hands: 137
      BB: $10.52 - VPIP: 38, PFR: 23, 3B: 0, AF: 0,7, Hands: 71
      Hero (UTG): $10.00 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 18, 3B: 5, AF: 4,7, Hands: 76463
      CO: $10.07 - VPIP: 18, PFR: 10, 3B: 7, AF: 3,7, AFq: 41, cBetFlop: 80(15), cBetTurn: 0(2), WTS: 20, W$SD: 36, Hands: 446

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is UTG with Q :diamond: Q :spade:
      Hero raises to $0.30, CO raises to $1, 2 folds, BB calls $0.90, Hero calls $0.70

      Flop: ($3.05) 5 :spade: 6 :diamond: 2 :spade: (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks, CO bets $2.35, BB folds, Hero calls $2.35

      Turn: ($7.75) A :spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      River: ($7.75) T :heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      1) Would a donkbet on the flop not be better? We get value from the BB's PPs + maybe even FDs and the 3Better will most likely not cBet with a miss with Ax here anyway. So by betting we protect our hand and get value.
      2) If we donk the flop, can we just check any missed turn HU vs the 3Better (his range then looks very overpair heavy), or do we even have to be afraid of him betting his TT-JJ if we check?

      Hi,

      I think you need to decide if you want to play for stacks or c/c once to then c/f turn. I would prefer playing for stacks that spot and I think best option would be c/rai- he can always put me on draws and call his TT/JJ hands. I don´t like lead, since very likely he would call sometimes with worse hands, often raise with draws and KK/AA and you loose c-bet that he might easily make even in 3-way

      best regards,
