      BB wins $9.36

      I saw him 3betting with KJo oop so I called him preflop because I had position on him. Flop 1/2 pot looks really weak but we're both deep so I just call him with intention of making a move on turn.

      When he donked the river I initially thought he was weak but looking back I think calling his weird bet is probably the best play (paired board + Ahigh flush possible)?

      Hello yaxkukmian,

      While he is that unpredictable I might even sometimes prefer Checking behind on turn, just for the reason that I don't really want to face a Check/Raise there, although betting is totally fine as well. Otherwise while taking a look at his play, I guess I am still shoving on river, he is capable of Calling there with just so many worse hands and his donk-bet seems to be as well rather weak. Although if you see him being rather passive opponent and likely betting with the nuts only, then Calling can be considerable as well.

      Best regards.
