      Hand converted with online hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      CO (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A, J.
      MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.30, Hero raises to $0.80, 3 folds, MP3 calls $0.50.

      Flop: ($1.75) 4, 9, 5 (2 players)
      MP3 bets $0.70, Hero raises to $3.40, MP3 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.45.

      Villain stats in 180 hands :
      22(vpip)/15(pfr)/43(f 3bet)/35(steal)
      100(fcbet)/0(f 2nd barrel)/40(wtsd)/3.4(af)
      donkbet 50%(2)

      It's a FR hand but we were only 6 left. Villain looks loose and folds a lot to 3bets (69% from MP if I remember correctly) so I think it's a mandatory 3bet spot. When he calls I expect some PP and probably some Ax. Then he donks, but very little and it's not the first time according to stats. If he had a cool pocket pair like 88,99,TT he would probably bet more (I don't think he doesn't know how to protect his hand) so I thought he's bluffing and decided to push.

      If you put him on Ax and PPs, I think it is not likely he will donk weak Ax like A:sT out of nowhere so I think he does it with hands that have equity here which means in a 3bet pot, they are not really happy to fold out so raise or call on the Flop doesn't make sense so I just fold

      Best regards,

      I thought he's thinking : This board doesn't hit you so I'll donk small to steal it away from you.
