      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3:
      $31.60
      CO:
      $25.00
      BU:
      $25.00
      SB(Hero):
      $49.75
      BB:
      $29.50
      MP1:
      $6.90
      MP2:
      $28.66


      Preflop: Hero is SB with 9, 9.
      MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.25, MP3 raises to $1.25, 2 folds, Hero calls $1.15, 2 folds.

      Flop: ($3) 9, 3, 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.50, MP3 raises to $3.50, Hero raises to $48.50, MP3 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $6.5.

      I was quite pleased with my donkbet because it is bound to get raised and it is a move i dont make often.

      then I thought that a flush chaser would probably make the same move..

      should i have flatted it and made the move on the turn?

      Hi,

      I donk like your mindonk at all.
      If he has the flush draw, you are giving way to good odds.

      Either just donk normally as you would do it with your weaker hands, too.
      OR check/raise because it's also a move you could do with FD.

      Let's see what the judges think.

      Best regards,
      Anin

      lol donkbet, I think it is fine move and people would isoraise with anything, but don´t shove over raise.
      Better to make it 9$ and then let him shove or call with worse hands
