      19/19/inf 79 hands, steal from BTN 63, cbet 100

      I beat his stealing range so I call. If I 3bet he is not calling with worse hands.

      He cbets often, so I could let him bluff, but I don't want to call on drawy board and if I checkraise he will fold worse hands. There is no need to get pot very big with this medium hand. So I think my donkbet is ok.
      My donk bet is a bit big, 0.4 would be better I guess.

      Hello SPeedFANat1c,

      Depends how often does he fold to 3bets, if he has some kind of bigger fold to 3bet then I'd just 3bet there and take the pot down without seeing the flop. Otherwise your Call is also totally fine if you expect to overplay him easily postflop. As played on flop I'd also like donking there to protect from any kind of draws but I'd likely bet a bit smaller, ~$0.40. Otherwise Check/Call could be also a reason but why let him to Check behind and let him get a free card, just bet. But if he does CBet most of his raises which he did preflop then I don't mind Check/Call and then donking on turn.

      Best regards.
