      Hero (CO) ($4.90)
      BTN ($5.75)
      SB ($9.95)
      BB ($5.68)

      Pre-flop: ($0.07, 5 players) Hero is CO Q:spade: K:heart:
      1 fold, Hero raises to $0.20, 2 folds, BB calls $0.15

      His betting pattern looks like bet-bet-bet, he was like a crazy bet machine.
      I think that my turn 3-bet is a good move. Your opinions, please!

      I dont like it too much. Board is so drawy that your FE plummets. If he is on a draw, he will call and then what do you do?

      I would just raise that flop. You often get a free turn card that way if he calls so you can sometimes pair get your gutshot by the river .

      The thing here is that he DONKBETS the flop. You play this like a float, but I don't like floating against donkbets... it's cheaper to find out if he has anything on the flop than on the turn. I would just raise the flop (as pfagg).

      Preflop: OK.
      Flop: I would rather prefer to raise him here because it's a bit cheaper, he might fold here.
      Turn: After your raise on flop he might cheking now and you can bet here can take the pot down.

      Also, as played: I don't like to raise on turn because it's too draw heavy.
