      Hello carrapa,

      Preflop: Against his stack you could even 4bet it and get it in.

      As played
      Postflop: What's the purpose of the donk? You don't even let him continue CBetting with weaker hands, don't really like it. But of course we are getting it in.

      Best Regards.

      I guess you are not showing the villain's hand on purpose, but I am guessing that he probably had AA, QQ, 77 or AQ ?

      I think calling 3B OOP is always problematic, but since you say he is a huge fish and it's a min 3B the call is not terrible.

      postflop - I agree w/ veriz. this is a good spot to check to the raiser.
      your donk might scare him out when he'd bet a worse hand, or open the door for stacks when you are behind.

      I'm not sure what kind of a fish your fish is, but if he normally pretty passive, you should have heard alarm bells.
      his near min raise on the flop seems to be begging for a call or re-raise.

      never forget - big pots for big hands, small pots for small hands. TPTK is not a big hand.
      fish pick up hands pre-flop same as everyone else.
      fish also hit the flop sometimes.

      I speak from experience as I raised JJ preflop w/ a loose passive fish (82/3 over 60 hands!) in the SB and he donked pot on a T-7-5r board. I called, then I stupidly called again when he shoved the 2 on the turn, expecting him to have Tx (say AT, KT, QT, JT, T9).
      he had T5o, and I took over his spot as "worst player at the table".

      Not saying it's wrong to Call while he raises so small. But you are OOP and you can't really play hit/Fold game there (wont hit often enough). :) Neither you can't be sure if you are good enough if you even hit one of your pairs.
