      BB wins with four of a kind, sixes(6s 6h).

      Villain was a rock vpip: 9.8 pfr: 5.6 only 217 hands.

      Looking back v such a tight opponent, his donk bet just screams strength.

      Is it a straight fold on the flop or should i raise/fold as he could think I'm just trying to steal the blinds?

      Letting go of Aces is hard :facepalm:

      :facepalm: :facepalm: lol just love those faces :D

      1. you already said he's a nit - so he is not having draw 100% !
      since J9 or JK is not in his range.

      2. he is not donk betting AQ. ( will let you bluff and will value bet, after you check)

      3. question is : if he ever considers donk bet bluffing whit small pp ?
      most likely doesn't have balls for it :pokerface:

      = easy fold on flop

      Hello gxtwo,

      As you mentioned he is a nit, so he will rarely donk/3bet with a lot worse here. At the best you could do is to Call the flop and reevaluate on further action. Raising is a bit overplayed.

      Best Regards.
