      Full Tilt - $0.25 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      BTN: $10.30
      Hero (SB): $25.00
      BB: $31.06
      UTG: $27.78
      CO: $26.80

      Hero posts SB $0.10, BB posts BB $0.25

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.35) Hero has 3:heart: 3:spade:

      fold, CO raises to $0.75, fold, Hero calls $0.65, BB calls $0.50

      Flop: ($2.25, 3 players) A:heart: K:spade: 3:diamond:
      Hero bets $1.50, fold, CO raises to $3.50, Hero raises to $10.00, CO raises to $17.00, Hero raises to $24.25 and is all-in, CO calls $7.25

      Turn: ($50.75, 2 players) 6:diamond:

      River: ($50.75, 2 players) 2:heart:

      Usually I never donk out, but this was second hand at this table, so everybody are unknown. I've decided to donk cause they will put me easily to Ax if I donk. Also I thought that CO isn't going to C-bet if he didn't hit that flop and that he will raise my donk if he has AK, AQ, AJ maybe even AT.

      I didn't shove it wright away to his raise case I thought he will fold AQ, AJ anyway, and with AK he will shove or he'll make committing 4-bet.

      Obviously he could have better set here, but I don't think that would be case here often enough to fold.

      I think that overall that doesn't change much if you donk or just c/r. If he's willing to put money in - he will do it anyway. There may be scenarios of him 3betting c/r and so on, but anyway mixing your actions are always best choice.

      There is not really any reason to donk bet this board. I think you should be donk betting in a multi way pot to not give away a free turn card. You are not really scared of any turn cards.

      Another reason for not donk betting is that the A and K will hit villains range a lot so he is going to cbet, then you can raise.

      I think donk is fine there, since he is either going to call with Ax hand, or maybe even raise there for value, so you can be sure that money goes to the pot all 3 streets
      Liked how you played your hand.
