      my turn donk was bad play?
      CO raised on the flop in multiway ,so I thought he had strong hands like 33,JJ,flush draw,OESD.
      and on the turn As comes,so I thought he has sets more than flush draw and didnt want him to hit full house so I donked .
      how should I play this hand?

      I think his flop raise has a lot of strength and usually overpair 2p or better and I'll bet myself for value on the turn. However I'll size the bet much bigger like 9-10 to set up for a smaller river bet.

      A check raise on the turn will look much stronger and he may fold 2p while he is more likely to call if we donked.
