      CO showed 2 2 and won $47.98 ($22.98 net)
      Hero showed K J and lost (-$25 net)

      It seemed like he was bluffing or having a king sice the board was so dry. Was the donk ok? I think he's checking back the king, and calling a donk bet. My plan was to fold to a raise.

      Hello TheTK,

      I like your play here and I wouldn't have played any differently. He has a lot of Kx hands in his range which may easily even level themselves to Call and some of them would just Check behind. Nice hand!

      Best Regards.
