It is $5.50 Super Stack tournament on FTP with 12min slow blind level and 5000 starting stack.

I should have folded the limp check-raise it has to be strong but I was forced to call as everyone called the limpers 3-bet I was getting super good price like 1:4.30

How should I have played this hand on the flop, should I check instead of donking?

I end up folding coz there was a player behind me if I was last to act I would call because I knew fish was shoving some draw for sure.

Hi Adi

Calling the initial raise of 45 is fine and I too would call the 3bet as it's very small and if we connect with the board strongly it's very likely were going to get paid off, we should however continue cautiously on flops such as this one. Donking flop is meh, we ought to be in check/call mode imo. Donking flop into 3 players looks super strong, it looks like you have a hand like QK/AQ.

If we check/call flop were keeping the size of the pot small and we're also giving ourselves a chance to improve our hand.

As played I like your fold for the reasons your already stated.

Cheers, Chris.

Not good, putting him on only draws, especially when we block some of the draws that might go nuts (AJ/AThh in particular). I would discourage you from making assumptions like this, as they may lead you to some significant mistakes, like stacking off 240bb's with just top pair.

Only reason I was sure that he had a draw was coz of his stats, which is not lot of hands. But I don't remember seeing that kind of play even by an average player when they have a set. Majority of the times I will be ahead of his limp cold calling 3-bet range and he will most of the time have Qx or draw. But we know some people do that stupid move with sets also or two pairs like 89o.
