      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.50 BB (8 handed) - Hold'em Manager Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      saw flop

      MP1 ($9.25)
      Gerv (UTG) ($52.75)
      UTG+1 ($35.92)
      MP2 ($20.18)
      CO ($51.02)
      Button ($48.34)
      SB ($35.14)
      BB ($46.25)

      Preflop: Gerv is UTG with A, Q
      Gerv bets $1.75, 6 folds, BB calls $1.25

      Flop: ($3.75) A, 3, Q (2 players)
      BB bets $1.78, Gerv calls $1.78

      Turn: ($7.31) K (2 players)
      BB bets $3.47, Gerv calls $3.47

      River: ($14.25) 8 (2 players)
      BB bets $6.77, Gerv calls $6.77

      Every donkbet went pretty fast of villain and that's why I just decided as played to limit my variance and thus just downcalled it.
      But I can easily seize control of the pot by raising him. Problem I face then is that I probably have to fold on a 3bet postflop right?

      What are your thoughts? I found this a hard one!

      calldown is not bad idea, especially in FR game, but imo your hand seems a lot stronger than it usually is, so I´m raising flop and go all-in if he decides to 3-bet.
      btw I think you´re often ahead river- he shouldn´t really make that small bet with set or flush, so I´m raising there for value and folding to shove, since I doubt he´d he´d shove there anything less than flush (although that almost never would happen)
