      Pre Flop: ($0.06) Hero is UTG with J:club: J:spade:
      Hero raises to $0.16, 3 folds, SB calls $0.14, BB calls $0.12

      Flop: ($0.48) T:club: 8:club: Q:heart: (3 players)
      SB checks, BB bets $0.04, Hero raises to $0.48, SB folds, BB raises to $0.92, Hero folds

      The donking villain 70/3/31 hands
      His min-donk is very often a draw imo so I usually raise these for protection. After his min-3bet I dont see many hands I beat with my mid-pair (combodraw?) and I only have few clean outs not even to the nuts. I hate to raise-fold these mediocre strenght hands but calling is much worse imo.

      Hello redwarf01,

      Nah, I would most likely have played the same way. Usually if they pick such a line it's a trap. But at the same time we still need to protect. But of course passive play and Call could be another play.

      Best Regards.
