      Pre-Flop: ($0.06, 6 players) HERO is SB A:diamond: Q:diamond:
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.08, BTN raises to $0.16, HERO calls $0.14, 1 fold, CO calls $0.08

      Flop: Q:heart: 10:spade: 9:diamond: ($0.52, 3 players)
      HERO bets $0.36, CO folds, BTN raises to $0.79, HERO folds

      CO: 64/32, ST: 64, AF:19, 50h
      BU: 30/11, 3B: 3, BU: 22%(all 3B only from BU), AF: 1.3, 180h

      PRE
      Unfortunately I did not have any reads about BU 3-bet tendencies. Also, when played, I did not notice, he was 3-betting only form BU, however sample size is not the greatest.

      I probably should have 4-bet for value pre (fold to 5B).

      FLOP
      Can`t really c/c vs passive guy. By leading I get value from Jx, KQ.

      Hey dienaszaglis,

      Presumably small 3bet from the BU here could still mean a pretty wide range, usually a selection of high-cards, suited-hands, pairs etc. A:dQ probably does ok against that range. Flatting is fine.

      Given that the pot is very small so far, 4betting is definitely an option (it'd work out being the size of a regular 3bet). I think flatting might be better seeing as you are more likely to keep in the CO who looks bad.

      Your donk on the flop is good. You don't really want this to get checked through multi-way. When BU raises he probably has overpair or 2pair+ so I like your line especially if he is passive.
