      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with K:heart: , K:club:
      MP2 raises to $0,10, Hero raises to $0,30, 4 folds, MP2 calls $0,20.
      this guy had 0% PFR before this hand.
      i 3bet to put him to the test, if he min4bets i make a setmine-call. he doesn't 4bet though

      Flop: ($0,68) J:spade: , 8:heart: , 3:diamond: (2 players)
      MP2 bets $0,41, Hero folds, MP2 gets uncalled bet back.
      great. now what, mr. smart guy?
      don't know what to make of it, guess i could be up against KK or QQ. his range is definitely strong here, but how strong?
      i just got confused and, as they say, when you're confused you're good folding.
      the thing is, what if turn and river comes in blanks? just calldown way ahead/way behind style? maybe that's the better alternative being IP, but he'll most likely 3barrel though

      Final Pot: $0,68

      Hello Tomaloc,

      Well, folding is way too weak in this spot. I'd still Call and reevaluate further streets. If he had a very strong hand would he even donk like that?

      Best regards.
