      Everest - $0.02 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      UTG: $1.92
      CO: $1.97
      Hero (BTN): $2.03
      SB: $0.58
      BB: $2.21

      SB posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has J:spade: A:club:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.07, fold, BB calls $0.05
      18/16
      3af/23wts/70w$sd
      no particular postflop reads (probably because i was lazy), but donk flop doesn't look like a common line for him

      Flop: ($0.15, 2 players) 5:club: 6:diamond: A:diamond:
      BB bets $0.15, Hero calls $0.15...?
      my particular hand plan here is to call once, and then...

      i want some brief commenting on the possible scenarios:
      - if he checks turn, i am going to bet 3/4 pot for protection and free showdown
      - if he continues to bet strongly, i just fold - he very likely wants sd
      - if he bets turn 1/2, should i call? and then what to do on river? i think i just fold turn there against him, but looks pretty bad

      and...
      - if i had just overcards on flop, do i just fold right there against donkbet?

      Hello Tomaloc,

      Well, if he pots again on the turn then most likely I'd be towards folding without having any more information like even not how many hands we have on the opponent. Against any other line I'd plan to play also for pot control or Bet if he Checks.

      Yes, we fold if we just have A high and he donks pot size without any reads. :)

      Best Regards.

      just want to say thanks. really :spade:

      to not leave this post too short and boring for those who read all posts on hand evaluation, i'll post the follow-up:
      turn was some random blank, he checked, i bet 3/4 according to plan and he folded
      wonder what was going on, but whatever, this was just a bit unusual

      You are welcome mate! That's what Hand Evaluation forums are for. :)

      About the opponents play well, not really. They very often donk like that with pure air and bluffs and of course with some draws.
