      Hi veriz,

      This guy likes to donk with nothing.
      At first I was thinking about calling on the flop.
      But If I call and he cbet the turn I'm gonna be forced to fold or go allin anyway. So I decided to shove it off on the flop.

      Thanks,
      cpers

      Hello cpers,

      Don't raise the flop. He will just have hard time to continue with a lot worse hands and you shouldn't be scared of any kind of hand. You will very likely get his money by river.

      Best regards.

      What about the chance he's having a trips? I'm not supposed to be scared about it because the chance are pretty low?

      It's a 3bet pot and I don't think that I'd get it away from here. He may easily as well have a lot of weaker PPs. We can't put him only on one strong hand.
