      First mistake is not playing full-stacked (100bb) and second mistake is raising the donk pot-bet on such a dangerous board.

      He either has you crushed or good chances at getting there.

      This is extremely tough spot. I'm assuming that you have 100BB, not 56BB. In case you have 100BB, I think I could call or even fold this hand - the hand itself is very vulnerable, therefore you cannot really raise/call for value on this board. In case of 56BB, it's way tougher to fold TPTK.

      Still, another point to consider is the strength of the potsized donkbet here.

      I think I could fold TPTK in both cases. It might look extremely timid, but I don't really see a lot of hands you're strongly ahead of, and given the size of the donkbet - even if you're ahead, it's very slightly ahead.

      Ofc, stacking 56BB in 3bet pot with TPTK, even on this board, is pretty much standard and we cannot really say it's a big mistake.

      Cheers,
