      Hero ???

      I think it is an auto-call here, isn't it?

      I also wondered if my play was ok on this hand, especially as I was very lucky to hit the turn. I decided to donk on the flop because I had a read on Villain to be loose and aggressive PF and I wanted to test him without check-raising on the flop, as he C-bets 100% of the time.

      Hello dondiego2000,

      Add to full stack.

      Preflop: I don't really like the Call here, since we will be OOP and also we don't really know the opponent. Either I am 3betting it here or just folding.

      As played
      Flop: Donking out is likely fine, if we still planning to continue with our hand. There are still a lot of hands which missed from his opening range, which may fold.
      Turn: I think it's kinda close but I wouldn't say that it's wrong. So therefore I'd say it's fine to Call his shove there, since he may still have a lot worse hands there. Maybe even hand like AQ or AT or something similar. Don't think that he will come up with the nuts that often there, since he would more often try to slowplay them and raise normally.

      Best regards.
