      Hello Oly0909,

      That's a really dumb situation, especially when he donks the river after us betting flop & turn. I might even consider at some point folding and saving our $2, I mean what do you expect him to play this way? Why should he block-bet and practically commit himself?

      Best Regards.

      Well, I said that "F" word when he donked, but still it's 1/3 of pot. I thought it's too weak to fold KK to such a small bet. Don't you think he could have TT-QQ and wanted to reach showdown cheaper?

      After us showing aggression preflop/flop/turn? While he has afterwards only like 90 cents left? Doesn't really look to me a block-bet.
