      PokerStars - 25/50 Ante 6 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      UTG: 13.44 BB (VPIP: 54.29, PFR: 8.82, 3Bet Preflop: 12.50, Hands: 35)
      MP: 22.78 BB (VPIP: 23.81, PFR: 14.29, 3Bet Preflop: 50.00, Hands: 21)
      CO: 38.84 BB (VPIP: 26.32, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 21)
      Hero (BTN): 29.56 BB
      SB: 47.46 BB (VPIP: 40.00, PFR: 5.26, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 21)
      BB: 27.92 BB (VPIP: 24.44, PFR: 18.60, 3Bet Preflop: 8.33, Hands: 45)

      6 players post ante of 0.12 BB, SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 2.22 BB) Hero has Q:club: T:club:

      fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to 2 BB, SB calls 1.5 BB, BB calls 1 BB

      Flop: (6.72 BB, 3 players) 2:spade: Q:spade: 6:heart:
      SB bets 3 BB, fold, Hero calls 3 BB

      Turn: (12.72 BB, 2 players) K:club:
      SB bets 6 BB, fold,

      How I play this hand? The SB player is passive and after calling he makes a donk bet, so i try to pay because my hand has value especially against him but on the turn my hand devalues and facing another bet i assume that he has a hand (probably QJ or KQ). Would you prefer to raise flop to protect my hand from an A,K or any spade? At the time i don't see too much danger so just call to control the pot.

      Cumps ;)

      I think you played it well. Another problem with raising on the flop that you are committing yourself and top pair T kicker isn’t great against his leading range against 2 players.
