      Preflop: Hero is UTG with A:heart: , A:club:
      Hero raises to $0,90, 4 folds, MP3 calls $0,90, CO calls $0,90, BU calls $0,90, SB folds, BB calls $0,65.

      Flop: ($4,65) K:heart: , T:spade: , 9:heart: (5 players)
      BB bets $4,65, Hero...

      I can't just call in this situation because everybody behind me with a draw would call aswell. So my options should only be fold or raise (if so how much so i don't get myself commited?).
      The BB seems like a somewhat solid player and there are not many hands he could donk with in this situation against 4 opponents (mainly set)
      I sometimes have situations like this where the player who donks got an AF of 2,5-3. Would this change my decisionmaking because he could donk with draws?

      Here is a good example of a more aggressive Opponent, here should a raise more necessary.

      I think raising here isn't option as still more players left to act after us, folding out AA looks kinda weak, but i think we are beat here, if the opponent is betting POT size on 5 way pot, his hand is strong and also he is vulnerable to draws, so he is donking. I think FOLD would be safer option or else we can go all-in and play for stacks, but i think we are almost always we are BEAT.

      Hello chocular77,

      There is no point to raise. You are practically committing yourself on such a board. There are just so many hands which beat you at and the best against some hands you flip. I'd really rather go for a Call and reevaluate it on turn.

      The guys pot size bet doesn't look like very weak either. According his style I'd even consider us being behind here. :( Which might even might be just fold right on flop.

      Best regards.
