      BB: $16.45 (65.8 bb)
      UTG: $12.87 (51.5 bb)
      MP: $13.50 (54 bb)
      CO: $25 (100 bb)
      BTN: $25.68 (102.7 bb)
      Hero (SB): $25 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q K
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.62, Hero calls $0.52, BB calls $0.37

      Flop: ($1.86) Q 3 2 (3 players)
      Hero bets $1.30, BB folds, BTN raises to $3.90, Hero???

      really messed up this hand.

      BU is 16/14 over 38 hands. BB seems fishy and snapcalled pre.

      on the flop i decided to donk for value and protection but then i realised i didn't have a plan on what to do if i get raised. from there on i completely messed it up. i don't really like check/calling and checkraising, so donking seemed like a good idea at the time since i doubt BU will be cbet bluffing this much...

      how should i play this hand?

      Hi DrDunne,

      Preflop: looks fine with fishy BB

      Postflop: Donking to isolate the fish is perfectly fine. Our bet doesn't look weak at all so when we get raised I'd expect a pretty strong range so without many more reads I think that bet/folding is acceptable.
