      Is my line okay here or should I just fold on the flop when I get donked into?

      Why would you even think about folding it on flop? he can donk you with KQ, KJ
      i wouldn't even fold it on turn, unless you have good reads on them. i don't think it would be a mistake to go broke on this board even against two villains
      but of course opponents' image is important here, how do they play

      Hello numbnutter,

      Yep, I totally like your line here. As you see from the bet sizes it could even indicate that he has a strong hand there. Nice hand! As you see actually how much money you save sometimes if you don't raise the flop for value. :)

      Best Regards.

      Thanks Veriz. Your advice about watching for opponents betsizes has been so helpful to me, I never realized before how obvious it is when they're just playing for value.

      Thanks for all the awesome comments, they're helping my game so much. :)
