      I really think Im playing way too weak tight... How should be a standard response against an unknown who makes such a weak donk bet on a spot like this? rr/f? call? just fold?
      Obs: the BB had disconected after the SB bet

      calling doesn't give you any information. They often have pocketpairs in these situation, thats why i would make a cont bet.

      These smalish donk bets are typically made by hands that want information or try to draw cheaply (sometimes they are also made by monsters to trap you). I'd just make a "normal" continuation bet - if he has something, he'll call or reraise but typically you get the pot. Calling is bad - you would never call with an ace, so you gave your opponents the information they want.

      So you think even on a multiway pot the best move is to make a Cbet on this spot then?
