      Call. He could be doing it with every 8x, TT+ (maybe even 44+), regarding his stats, 4,7 AF for 2nl. Lol (But yeah only 50 hands).

      But, i would never call his flop minraise, i think best play vs. such aggrodonk is to minraise back and hoping he spews with 8x, 44+. If hes got 3x, thats too bad, you played hand vs. him profitably.

      Hello K6ngsepp,

      Well, why ain't ya just 3betting it right on flop? Do you really want to Call the flop and then give away free cards? You can't play it that correctly on turn while he could just Check behind and you give away a card. Rather just 3bet it right on flop and get it in. 3x ain't that likely but while he could easily have worse pairs/PPs.

      Best Regards.
