      $24,75
      BB:
      $26,40
      Hero:
      $23,40

      0,1/0,25 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A:diamond: , Q:diamond:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $1,00, 3 folds, SB calls $0,90, BB calls $0,75.

      Flop: ($3,00) T:diamond: , 3:club: , 6:diamond: (3 players)
      SB checks, BB bets $1,50, Hero raises to $4,50, 2 folds.

      Final Pot: $9,00

      I hate those donks. However, we are ready to go broke on such a flop, right?
      However, since the size of the donbet is only 1/2 of the pot, it seems to be weak. If we had AQo, it is a clear fold, since we do not know what SB will do. But if SB donks 1/2-pot and BB folds, can we raise?

      I´d also raise here probably to 5$.
      I think shoving here is probably fine if he 3-bets, but also a lot of times you face sets, so if he i making 9$ I´m calling and shove turn if I hit my flush.
