      Hello StraGus,

      Well, of course it's possible. But do you really think you gonna make any better hand to fold? Most likely any hand you make to fold you win with the Ace high. :( So therefore, I'd rather Check it behind there.

      Also another possibility against such min-donks would be to just raise it right on the flop and of course gain even fold equity sometimes against better hands. Usually you can take such a min-bet as Check and just add the $0,10 into the pot and like you are making a CB.

      Best Regards.
