      Hey BAMLara,

      Why do you raise flop donkbet? One should fold there without a decent hand which second pair isn't.

      As played, I prefer the check behind on the river. V-betting is too thin in my opinion.

      Hi Burek2000,

      Sorry i didn't include any additional information or stat on my post (i'm new to posting hands in the forum).

      The villan is a callingstation he was calling raises preflop with any two connected, any two suited I didn't wanted to fold to mid pair or a draw. Taking this in to consideration do you think I shouldn't raise that dbet?

      Welcome to the hand evaluation forum! :f_grin:

      Do you have any info on how much does he donkbet? Any idea what his donking range might be?

      You must know if he is a true calling station then any sign of aggression is a sign of a strong hand and donkbetting is aggressive act, so I would just fold the hand there because I would expect him to usually donk Ax and FD type of hands and your equity against such a range is very poor with 99.

      He donks the flop 22%, but to be honest at that moment i didn't look for this stat to make my decision. It's that high or low? i don't even have a clue ?(

      Considering he hits the flop 33% of the time, I think 22% is low. He probably donks top pair and his better hands.
      As played I would definately check behind river.

      I think that is ab it of wrong assumption as you can't connect those too with each other. You can better look at this AF, AFq, c/R, raise cbet, WTSD, WWSF , VPIP, PFR and also look at how much % other players are donking

      Safely to say 22% is abit high but once again we need other stats & sample sizes to get a good player profiling here

      If you think you can get to showdown for $0.9 then by all means raise the Flop then otherwise you are better off folding Flop
