      Prima, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      BTN: $50 (100 bb)
      Hero (SB): $72.07 (144.1 bb)
      BB: $70.63 (141.3 bb)
      UTG: $43.94 (87.9 bb)
      MP: $50 (100 bb)
      CO: $39.31 (78.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 8:club: 8:spade:
      UTG raises to $1, 2 folds, BTN calls $1, Hero calls $0.75, BB folds

      Flop: ($3.50) A:club: 8:diamond: 9:heart: (3 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets $1.75, BTN calls $1.75, Hero calls $1.75

      Turn: ($8.75) 3:spade: (3 players)
      Hero bets $5.75, UTG folds, BTN raises to $14.50, Hero raises to $69.32 and is all-in, BTN calls $32.75 and is all-in

      UTG 23/16 45% agg. freq, 50% CB (4) 71 hands
      BTN 23/13 33% agg., 53hands

      I think calling the flop is fine. There are few draws to protect from.

      On the turn ch/r or donk? UTG probably has a hand and i thought i can get 3 streets vs Ax with lead, instead of 2 with ch/r? I don`t think i can play different after BTN raised?

      Hi Achilles,

      If we are planning on donking the turn why not just ck/raise the flop?

      By default, without any history or other info on villains I'd ck/raise that flop (not too big). I doubt you will get anyone to fold Ax or TJ type draws.

      As played why would we ever fold to the raise versus the donk? We got what we were after, one of them putting more money in the pot.
