      UTG2 is 24/5 (41 hands). In 41 hands the AF=2 and WTS=44 if it helps.

      What are possible donk betting ranges here? Should I raise on flop? Or should I just call or simply fold?

      What about turn and river as played?

      thx!

      Preflop 3 BB + 2 because of the limpers. The donkbet looks pretty weak so I actually wouldn't fold. I think you can either call, reevaluate your hand on the turn and try to get a cheap showdown or you can raise the flop and try to win the pot immediately. As played, checking behind the turn and folding on the river is fine.

      i think a much better line in this hand is calling flop, playing for pot control and probably giving up if villain was to bet 3 streets or possibly even the turn.

      as played, what sort of hands do you think you get value from by raising on the flop? raising on the flop polarizes his range to Ax and maybe strong FD's, so i disagree with raising flop. if you think you are ahead, call flop and allow villain to bluff again or just give up

      What do you think his betting lead range is?

      Why do you think raising the flop is good idea? What is our plan on T/R mostly if he calls the raise?

      Why do you think some players prefer calling over raising on the FLop? What is our gameplan when he leads again on 1) A and 2) 2 like 50%-75% pot?
