I'm not really sure how good or bad I played this hand. The flop donk I think villain_4 could just be taking a stab because it's a scary board for a 3bet pot, so I call to re-evaluate on the turn.

I'm not sure what to think of the guy calling behind, I'm thinking draw.

The turn bet I put out is less than half pot, but will be easy to get the rest of villain_4's money in on the river if called, I don't think anyone that has something is folding, including draws.

Villain_1 raises 20c and the other player folds. It's 20c, for the size of the pot I'm always calling the tiny raise.

The only hands that are beating me are a flush and the board can pair, so I feel like I always have some equity and probably favorite throughout the hand.

But no idea how well I played the hand. Thoughts?

I'll start by saying I'm fairly certain that this is a massive cooler, and I wouldn't have played it too much differently from you.

Villain 1 cold called a 3bet with A9s on the BTN, which is very very loose, especially when the 3bet is against a UTG open.

From my experience at 2nl 6max which is fairly limited (~100k hands), villain 4 will be donking here with a draw tying to get you to fold on the scary texture. Sometimes, but not often, do they decide to donk with zero equity (especially into 2 players). For that reason I think I'm more inclined to try and get my money in on the flop.

As played, you can safely jam the turn assuming villain 1 is on a draw rather than leaving him with 20c remaining - I don't want to have to see a diamond pop out on the river and be forced to dish over my remaining stack to him!
