      He was a donk... And 1/2 the pot on the flop didn't seem very strong...

      The flop is quite dry. Two things could happen here he has a K or doesn't. In both cases he's C-Betting. If he has a K he would bet the same amount since not much protection is needed. If he 3-Bets your raise you'll be forced to fold and give up your hand and that turns your hand into a bluff.

      And as a general rule, don't bluff donks, don't try to catch their bluff either. Take them out when you have the best hand and this one wasn't it.

      If he didn't have K he probably wouldn't have 2nd Barreled and you could have taken the pot down so I think a call was the best option here.

      Hi,

      problem shoving is that he would likely not b/c with worst hands. I think your hand is a little too strong to just fold, so I would call flop and if you put him on air then would call any turn card

      best regards,
