Default 98% to win post-flop bad beat

550 player online freeroll MTT exactly half way. M>20, Q ~1.5. Winner receives a trip to Vegas.

Hero dealt A [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] T [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] on CO.
Folds around to me, raise 3xBB. All fold to BB-Donk who calls.

Flop:

Q [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] 6 [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] 3 [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img]

Donk bets ~1/3 pot. I call.

Turn:

K [img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img]

Donk bets ~1/3 pot. I call.

River:

6 [img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img]

Donk bets ~1/2 of pot. Pot is now size of my stack. I push. Donk calls and has me covered (barely). I don't see any other play unless I'm scared of K6, Q6, 63, or 66 which I'm not.

Results in white:
<font color="white"> Donk holds Kc6d for 6s full of Kings. I finish 275.</font>

Nothing at all wrong with letting him bet off all of his chips.

Why raise the flop or turn against a bad player likely drawing dead?

I think this is one of those cases where you were doomed by the cards.

I don't think that there was any way you were going to get king six out of there once he hit the six without going all in. And we all know that you can't go all in on that flop and expect to make any money.

Excellent display of discipline with the value-call line. You must have the art of Zen mastered. NH.
