      Stats: 43/16.6/3.4/47 (vpip/pfr/af/wts) with 84 hands

      Even though his PfR range is ahead QJs, I saw him raising on the last hand with A6o and I had good odds because SB called. Even so I think I should have folded it, I was oop.

      On the flop I decided to donkbet because I was oop and I was up against 2 opponents (I didnt want to check/call, he could 2nd barrel me and he'd create a big pot where I can be beat against KJ or AJ already. Check/raise is an option though, but TPGK isn't that strong to do it I guess). He raised me but on NL10 many players get offended by a donkbet and raise with air, but then again I think I should have folded it because I was oop...

      On the turn he insists and he probably doesn't have air here, and whatever he got beats me, so I fold.

      My main questions is whether I should have called or folded preflop, and is donkbetting that bad like the name says? I usually do it on 3way pot with TPGK or TPTK so I don't give a freecard if the initial raiser decides not to cbet and I can take the pot right there.

      I think you should have folded preflop, except you were speculating on straight or flush. But I think that is rarely a good idea vs a raise.

      After he reraised you on flop I would have folded right away. You're usually beat there.

      you cam raise qjs here or you can fold it but i would stick to folding it for now .
      i would try to take a pot control line and show down the hand .
      i dont like to donk hands like tpgk unless i am sure i want to go ai with them because otherwise you dont know what to do when you are facing a raise .
      as played i would give up to his big raise on that drawy board because he most likely has a big draw or has you beat .
