      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (8 handed)

      Hero ($5)
      Button ($25.80)
      SB ($25.35)
      BB ($21.15)
      UTG ($9.75)
      UTG+1 ($11.35)
      MP1 ($14.10)
      MP2 ($10.75)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A:spade: , Q:spade: .
      [color:#666666]1 fold[/color], UTG+1 calls $0.25, [color:#666666]1 fold[/color], MP2 calls $0.25, [color:#CC3333]Hero raises to $1.5[/color], [color:#666666]3 folds[/color], UTG+1 folds, MP2 calls $1.25.

      Flop: ($3.60) 2:spade: , K:spade: , 3:spade: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]
      [color:#CC3333]MP2 bets $0.25[/color], [color:#CC3333]Hero raises to $3.5[/color], MP2 calls $3.25.

      Turn: ($10.60) 6:spade: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]

      River: ($10.60) T:heart: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]

      Final Pot: $10.60

      Should I raise less on the flop so that I don't risk chasing him out of the pot? I'd have bet pot if I was first to bet anyway, I just wasn't sure what to do about the min-donk-bet.

      Thanks,

      you shouldnt bet pot size when you have the nuts/good made hand.
      always bet 2/3 pot

      and in this case i would have raised max to 2/3 pot so that he is invited to call and would shove the rest in it at the turn

      It doesn't make any sense to bet 2/3 pot when I have less than pot left in my stack.

      You played that hand well, you have the nuts and you have to push all in anyway, no matter if he donks or not.
