      Hi,

      Noooooooooooooo,awofullllllll and terrilible hand ,sorry :)

      Preflop is ok.Later think what range he calls you preflop and what part of that range you can fold here? What's your hand's equity here and how you want to use it? Despite his loose vpip,he is raising tight and should call pretty good range here (TT+AK,AQ,KQ,maybe some more,almost entire his range) and almost entire his range can continue on this board.So almost no FE.On other hand you have big pot equity here, between 40-50% on flop.And this is 3bet pot,cbet should be 0.5 pot size.So what to do? Cbet and 3bet all in (cos you have big equity if case he calls,this move can add some FE vs AQ,KQ).cbet and call is big mistake imho,you can win if you hit only and spr ,that you hardly can fold turn.Another option is check-call flop(you have litlle FE) and c/f or c/r turn.After he raised you on flop donkbet turn,don't think you can scary him. Anyway this is all in hand and better do it on flop when you have most pot and FE.
      missed again

      just change this attitude.

      Hope it helps a bit bit.

      Best regards.

      Hello Aceton13,

      I don't think that you have much fold equity anyways with the donk on flop, rather just Check/Call and play it on further streets when you hit and if not then you have an easy fold. But as played if you Call his raise then why you donking the turn? What are you trying to accomplish? He ain't going to fold to it anyways. Rather get it in on flop or just fold it, that's why I don't like donking here.

      Best regards.
