      Hi,

      I'd 3-bet preflop to ~0,8-0,9$. Minraises from button can mean anything.
      If he shoves you can fold. If he calls then you have the iniative.

      As played: Why do you donk the flop so weak when you weren't the preflop aggressor? Either donk pot or check/raise.

      You can't fold to a minraise on turn when a blank hits imo.
      Because you showed so much weakness with your betsizes.
      If he happens to have AA, KK or QQ (unlikely) it's a setup.

      Let's see what the judges think.

      Best regards,
      Anin

      I agree on the preflop 3bet, and i also think the turn fold is too weak when you take such a weird line with weak betsizing, i could see myself in villain's shoes raising any Qx there figuring you're drawing.

      On the flop if he's passive just pot it into him until something happens or the board gets really ugly. If he's aggressive check/raise him and get it in barring some read if he 3bets, if he just calls continue to bet into him on blank cards as he's usually either drawing or he's bluff-catching with a worse Qx.


      Hope it helps.
