      BB ($1.77)

      UTG+1 ($2.62)
      UTG+2 ($0.97)
      Hero ($2.69)
      BTN ($1)

      Dealt to Hero A:heart: K:club:

      fold, fold, UTG+2 raises to $0.06, Hero raises to $0.18, fold, fold, fold, UTG+2 calls $0.12

      FLOP ($0.39) K:heart: 2:heart: Q:heart:

      UTG+2 bets $0.38, Hero raises to $2.51 (AI), UTG+2 folds

      Hero shows A:heart: K:club:

      Hero wins $1.10

      Villain is 23/17 AF inf over 47 hands

      I 3bet for value and would also call his shove preflop given his looser openings and his stack size

      On flop I hit top pair and nut flush draw, he bets pot and I just shove it in

      checked how I stand vs his imo 3bet calling range

      Board: Kh 2h Qh

      equity win tie pots won pots tied
      Hand 0: 81.955% 75.55% 06.41% 22437 1903.50 { AhKc }
      Hand 1: 18.045% 11.64% 06.41% 3456 1903.50 { QQ-99, AdKd, AsKs, AcQc, AdQd, AsQs, AKo }

      so I think this was correct decision

      Preflop: Sounds reasonable to me. I think though, that you should 3bet bluff him a ton vs his wide opening range. As a result, I would want to use a smaller 3bet size as well, something like 15 cents instead.

      Flop: Why would you want to raise? What turns are you afraid of? Let him bet and continue bluffing or valuebetting worse hands.

      We also have no issues with getting the money in on a later street.

      Generally people don't pot donk fold, and even if he bluffed he may not continue it, he may call in loose with total trash he bluffed with.

      If he had bigger stack and also very aggro i would just call, he can't bluff call a shove.
