      I guess this should have been a fold? but where should I have folded then? I thought he would not have a big hand since he was betting pot size all the time, it looked like he wanted to get me out. I thought in case he had a street or trips he would have bet less to squeeze out some $$.

      Hand converted with online hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A, K.
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 calls $0.05, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.25, 3 folds, UTG2 calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.57) K, 4, 3 (2 players)
      UTG2 bets $0.55, Hero calls $0.55.

      Turn: ($1.67) 2 (2 players)
      UTG2 bets $1.85, Hero calls $1.85.

      River: ($5.37) J (2 players)
      UTG2 bets $5.91(All-In), Hero calls $5.91.

      Final Pot: $17.19.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of kings(A K).
      UTG2 shows three of a kind, fours(4 4).

      UTG2 wins with three of a kind, fours(4 4).

      villain obviously squeezed out the maximum from YOU!
      I guess you misplayed this hand.
      If villain donks pot on a drawy board it could mean anything: FD, set, bluff, TPNOKicker,...etc.
      I'd just raise the donk to 1,75$ to see where you stand.
      If villain shoves you have to ask yourself, if this particular villain is able to shove FDs => CALL or if he only shoves 2pair+. => FOLD

      As played: You can just call flop in position BUT then you have to raise turn on a non heart card imo.
      On river you can fold.

      Let's see what the judges think.

      Best regards,

      P.S.: Please don't post results.

      I think it's a reg set mining a lot of the time, you don't really see many fish passive enough to limp/call preflop and then aggro enough to donk pot a draw for 3 streets postflop. I'm quite sure many of the regs in FR game at nl5 wouldn't even take that line with a flushdraw.

      I find my fold button quite easily so i think i usually fold the turn, tho i don't think calling the turn and folding the river is horrible since if he does indeed play some draws like that, he usually won't just jam the river if he missed, it really looks like you're not folding.

      Hope it helps.
