      Villain stats in 250 hands :
      18(vpip)/15(pfr)/14(3b)/80(f 3b)/33(steal)
      50(cbet)/0(fcbet)/0(f 2nd)/57(wtsd)/1(af)
      fold steal in BB 30%
      donk 50%

      This guy is calling a lot, he's not folding to cbets and donking a lot. That's why I tried to represent the ace as best as I could and discourage him from continuing but I think I should have raised to at least 1.6$ on the flop :/ that was my mistake. When he calls I don't think he has an ace and the flushdraw didn't complete so I shove for max fold equity, and I can still have a decent share of equity in the pot (from 50% to 66% if he only holds a flushdraws or flushdraw+gutshot), but the guy is loco and calls :D

      Right now I notice his went to showdown is 57% so I probably choosed a bad moment to bluff, but if you check his hand I was actually slightly ahead on the flop but he hit a lucky card on the turn x(

      Hey Badea,

      If he has high donk/fold then I like your flop raise, however I don't think this is the case here especially considering his high WTS. Against such player don't try to be tricky and just play for max value instead. If you try to make moves here you will end up spewing money.

      On the flop, just fold to the donkbet and wait for a better spot to get his money.

      As played, I just c/f the hand after he calls the flop raise. He can have draws there or Ax(usually weaker ones), so I think shoving there is rather spewy.

      Best regards,
