      I think calling his donk is ok-ish against players who spazz a lot in this spot. mind you: it is ok-ish against players on whom you read on. Is this the case ?I think not, but let's say ok, honest mistake.
      But when he shoves 2.3 into 0.91 on the turn, how in the world can you call with TPTK(with no clubs ?!?!?!?!??!?!) on such a draw heavy board.

      What you beat on the turn
      - bluff
      - flush draw/straight draw
      (both are very very unlikely give how he donk-over-bet the flop

      What beats you on the turn:
      - two pair: A5, A6, 56
      - sets: 55,66
      - made flush hand: 7c8c, etc
      - straight

      see why calling is bad ?

      don't get your money in bad(as a big underdog). Fish do that.

      Hello daun666,

      Preflop: With one limper raise to $0,10.
      Postflop: Against that kind of line you can consider Calling on flop but it's definitely a fold on turn. I don't think that we beat much there anymore vs such a strong line.

      Best regards.
