      Preflop: Hero is SB with 8:diamond: , 8:club:
      MP2 calls $0,10, MP3 raises to $0,50, 2 folds, Hero calls $0,45, BB calls $0,40, MP2 folds.

      Flop: ($1,60) 5:club: , 4:spade: , 5:spade: (3 players)
      Hero bets $1,20, BB folds, MP3 calls $1,20.

      Turn: ($4,00) 2:club: (2 players)

      Was wondering if it is a good play to donkbet the flop on such board with an overpair against two opponents, and now when I got the call what to on the turn?

      Is it perhaps better to c/r or just c/c and reevaluate on the turn? I assumed raising is not that good since I am up against two opponents, also he could have a better overpair, but I don't know really...

      I don't like such a donkbet because our isolating yourself against better overpairs. Let villain make his cbet to get more value from overcards.

      Then you can play c/c or c/r.

      I prefer c/r to protect against overcards. If he shoves or calls I'm done with the hand.
