      Hello LioPio,

      Welcome to the NL BSS Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future, so we will be able to help you fix your leaks and as well help move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Question 1: Is it wise to raise a donkbet on the flop?

      Guess doesn't really have to be a raise. Although against his donk I do usually do that as well. It's just way too small and maybe wants to get some free card with some draw. Although sometimes I do as well just Call it here while against his stack we might even sometimes consider him shipping it here and we would face a difficult spot.

      Question 2: After the 3-bet on the flop, should I Fold or Call?

      Guess it's rather a fold. He will so often trap us here in this kind of situation. And 2pairs are very likely to have him and even straight is possible. And it's pretty much to Call here as well. So unless I know the opponent better I wouldn't Call.

      Best regards.
