      Very small sample with villain (23), he is playing 47/15 and has 3 donks in his record which represent a 33% percentage. I'm usually beat here so I looked at the stats to find an excuse to call. Call/fold?

      Hello BadeaCelRau,

      Seems to be totally fine to play this way you played the hand. If he really had the Ax then why is he donking it?

      Best regards.

      Weird, I never thought it's a good play xD . One reason for him donking is that he's a fish and they are so bad ...

      It's really up to the opponent. As it was even in this case. He had been donking a lot of flops which indicates that he can easily do that as well with bluffs.
