      Just 4bet and get it in. Traping doesnt make any sense because almost always A or K will fall and you will be oop.
      As played why donk? You wont fold out any better hand.

      If I 4 bet here, would I push weaker hands(9/9 to J/J or maybe A/Js, A/Qs) to fold and getting better hands to 5bet?

      Hello zhengjohn,

      Welcome to the NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Well, even if you Call in this spot which is totally fine. I don't understand what's the idea of donking the flop? I mean you would never-ever donk it with a set or AK. You would most likely Check/Call or Check/Raise with it.

      For that given reason I'd rather Check/Fold it on turn and let it be. We ain't having there any odds for our draw or even could have easily reversed implied odds.

      Best regards.
