      Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (6 handed) - Full Tilt Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      saw flop

      SB ($25.10)
      BB ($26.10)
      UTG ($67.99)
      Hero (MP) ($25)
      CO ($32.66)
      Button ($34.52)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with K, K
      UTG calls $0.25, Hero bets $1.50, 2 folds, SB calls $1.40, 2 folds

      Flop: ($3.50) K, 7, 3 (2 players)
      SB bets $2.80, Hero ??

      SB is a 10/7 player over 70 hands.

      I think that his donking range on the flop should be made out of strong draws that he is planning to bet/3bet like nfd or flush +pair/gutter or a strong value hand, and if this is the case raising is going to be the best choice.

      Does it make sense for him to donk as a bluff here? With what kind of hands? Taking a b/f line with QQ/JJ?

      I agree this bet is mostly for value and protection, so I´d also raise flop to 8$ and get all-in
      I doubt he is donking out his middle pp-s. he may bet/3-bet with A high flushdraws and balance that out with sets
      So best line should raise and get all-in with nuts before board gets more scarier for you and him
