      I think UTG calling range for your 3-bet is perhaps a little wider:
      AK (some players might 4-bet; also, you block half the combos),
      AQ (you also block half the combos),
      88 - QQ.

      So it's mostly PPs and, since you hold Ah, probably no FDs. With that in mind, his raise OTF looks to me like a set and so I'd probably fold there. It's almost never a bluff, I think.

      Betting the flop much bigger.....~$1.20 ish. This is a board I would bluff often (in your opponents shoes) when facing such a small c-bet). Not a great flop for you however you do block quite a few things. 9’s, 10’s Q’s are all cards you don’t really want to see. With Ah, there are many turns where you can barrel (A, heart).

      In short, I start by sizing up the cbet.

      Also, good to see an fellow Upswinger here (noticed your hand converter ;) )

      Damn... I almost saw 3 spades on the board. Maybe Upswinger could work on color coding them cards a bit.

      And exactly as GridironAssassin says. I would raise the donk bet IP here very often.

      Anyway, call the raise and then fold to a turn bet is something I try to avoid.
      So fold flop (which I would not do) or get one way or the other your stack in is my strategy.

      Firstly I would 3bet here much bigger like 0.9$ or 1$. You are OOP, deep, and playing against a tighter range (UTG).
      Secondly otf I would bet bigger same as preflop 0.9$ or 1$. Against a flop raise I would fold generally but against a minraise it would be a mistake
      I think you played the hand as it should have been except the small betsizes.

      Tough spot on the Turn, I think people sometimes bet Turn check River with QT type of hands, he can very well have some bluffs too. Guess it sucks that you block Ah.
