      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      MP: $11.72
      CO: $49.48
      Hero (BTN): $25.67
      SB: $32.04
      BB: $25.71 (VPP 56 / PFR 20) [26 hands]
      UTG: $10.00

      SB posts SB $0.10, BB posts BB $0.25

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.35) Hero has Q:spade: 8:spade:

      fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.62, fold, BB calls $0.37

      Flop: ($1.34, 2 players) A:diamond: 7:heart: 8:diamond:
      BB bets $1.00, Hero calls $1.00

      Turn: ($3.34, 2 players) 5:spade:
      BB bets $2.00, fold

      I often wonder how to play against donk-bets from fishy players. Fold flop? Fold turn? Fold river? Call down once, especially on such a drawy board?

      Since I don´t like calling him down I would raise to 2.8$ to then check it down. He is sometimes donking out with air, sometimes with draws, rarely Ax hands or two pair+. Generally I should have there at least 50% equity and I don´t have to guess three streets if he is bluffing or valuebetting.

      best regards,
