      UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.15, 2 folds, SB calls $0.13, BB calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.45) 8 A K (3 players)

      Turn: ($1.11) 2 (2 players)

      $1.11 pot ($0.05 rake)
      Final Board: 8 A K 2
      Hero mucked Q A and lost (-$0.48 net)
      SB mucked and won $1.06 ($0.58 net)

      Both Villains are unknown.

      PF: Standard raise

      Flop: When he donks 3/4 pot, I decided to just call. I don't think players at NL5 will play their draws aggressively. I also think raising will just isolate myself vs stronger hands. Maybe only AJ.

      Turn: The turn doesn't change anything. When he bets pot here, he's committing himself on the River already, so if I call I might as well shove. I'm not sure if I should shove here. Not sure if he will play Ax this way, even though he's clearly fishy.

      Preflop is fine.

      On the flop calling against the donk bet is good.

      I prefer calling the turn and planning to call the river.
      On this board he can hardly have a good hand so he is just left with A8/88 for value, but he could bet like this with worse aces as well in my opinion.
