      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      BU (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BU with A, A.
      MP3 calls $0.10, CO folds, Hero raises to $0.40, SB folds, BB raises to $1.35, MP3 folds, Hero raises to $3.10, BB calls $1.75.

      Flop: ($6.35) K, 2, J (2 players)
      BB bets $6.00, Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $6.35.

      its 3rd hand so almost no stats,
      4 bet was called, and pot sized donk bet,I folded AA,was it misplayed?
      got scared of KK,but also AK is possible.
      after all,how should I play this hand?

      imo KK would ship preflop

      my other thots on it: (assuming thinking reg)
      he knows ur isolating limper plus ur the button, he can 3bet pretty wide
      ur pretty deep which makes it actually profitable to 3bet u with hands like sc coz he still gets paid if he hits it hard
      dont know wat he flatcalls ur 4bet with but imo will 5bet/ship KK+

      Hello daisuke3823,

      Preflop: While being that deep you are just giving him great odds for set-mining even. Therefore I would raise it bigger like $4.

      As played
      Postflop: Ask yourself, would he donk like that with set? I am more often inclined to think that he wouldn't since he wouldn't be scared of anything. Likely would rather Check/Raise you. Although while you are pretty deep and want to avoid variance then folding ain't a mistake and likely the safest play.

      But I would rather say that we are getting pretty decent equity, even if we put him on some kind of set:

      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 51,898% 51,524% 0,749% 47,727% AdAc
      Player 2: 48,102% 47,727% 0,749% 51,524% KK, JJ, AKs, AdQd, AKo

      I would likely either Call it or just ship it. Maybe Calling would be even better since we wont make him fold some dumb hands which is is donking this way and we can ship it on turn ourselves if he Checks.

      Best regards.
