      Preflop: I call, because I don't want to 3/5bet with this hand, but
      rather use KK+. On the other hand my SPR in this situation sucks.

      Flop: I hava a huge draw and I'm OOP, so I want to play fast
      and get it in on the flop.

      Turn: When Villain raises my equity is not enough to call vs:

      Board: Q:diamond: T:diamond: 6:heart:  9:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    25.97%  25.97%   0.00% { AdKd }
      MP3    74.03%  74.03%   0.00% { QQ+, TT, 66, KJs, QTs }

      Villain's raise gives me ~32% to call. I need 25% to breakeven.

      Do I need to bet more on turn to commit or
      rather x/f Turn?
      Another option on the Turn might ber to x/r JAM,
      but I don't have such info about my opponent.

      Flop#2: Other option could be to donkbet/3bet.

      1. If he calls just a donkbet, then I can comfortably either
      bet/fold turn or if I had reads x/r Turn.
      2. If he raises my donkbet and calls 3bet, that I can size my 3bet to
      JAM any turn.
      3. If he raise/4bet over my 3bet = i'm all-in.

      Since it is 4-handed I think you should 3-bet AKs. He may always 4-bet bluff and sometimes get all-in with AQ. Also you take advantage and most of the times you have very easy postflop play if you hit your flushdraw or tptk

      Flop c/r is fine and I´m fine b/c turn. I would bet a lot bigger 13$ to make committing bet and also I can then shove most rivers and expect to have some fold equity.

      bet/3-bet flop line seems also fine. If I just get called then I would bet turn and bet river to folds from marginal hands.

      best regards,
