      BB is Lindamialara. This player is a little wild with donk bet- 58%.
      What do you think about play on the flop?
      I decided to reraise because of his donkbet stats. We can get value from worse hands. We don't want to be outdrawn any K, A will kill our action so I decided to reraise.
      When BTN just calls I was sure that we are in trouble and probably facing slowplay set.

      Hello BGawli,

      I would still raise the flop bigger so I could also protect a bit. :P Especially if he is a loose station ~$7-8. :) But otherwise that's trouble. Especially even BB shipping like that, he can't really gain fold equity vs both opponents and at the same time you have the BTN guy behind you who has so high W$SD. Seems like a good fold on turn.

      Best Regards.

      I agree with your play here but I would make it bigger. If I m folding or not depends how I see the opponent. Of course his W$SD tells us that we are behind but I wouldnt completely agree. Of course the donk bet from such is not much respected but the question is with what is the BTN calling your raise. Do you think that he would fold here TT and JJ(do you think that he is calling this this hand preflop) aswell some nut-FD or FD+GS. I mean he is passive and passive players dont tend to slowplay set or their hands that I why we love them. When they raise we are behind when they call we are ahead but again I dont play NL20 so I wouldnt say that my opinion is based on limits that I played.

      I think that BTN would fold TT-JJ and maybe FD and in this situation I was sure that we are behind on the turn against BTN so I folded.
      BTN shows 99, BB-63o and won the pot.

      Probably he wanted to stay BB in the pot and he decided to slowplay set.
