      Not my hand but interested to see what is best here...

      Villain is 36/11 over 98 hands.

      At the moment he had 50% donkbet (2/4)

      Also he had just 20% wtsd so I thought that his donkbetrange was pretyy weak and that he could fold pairs. Besides this I also have decend equity with my overs.

      Is this good?

      Poker Stars, $0.08/$0.16 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      UTG: $11.11 (69.4 bb)
      MP: $34.78 (217.4 bb)
      Hero (CO): $16.88 (105.5 bb)
      BTN: $19.35 (120.9 bb)
      SB: $15.50 (96.9 bb)
      BB: $16 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A K
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.48, BTN folds, SB calls $0.40, BB folds

      Flop: ($1.12) 5 6 T (2 players)
      SB bets $0.48, Hero raises to $1.44, SB calls $0.96

      Turn: ($4) 3 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($4) 8 (2 players)
      SB bets $1.12, Hero folds

      WHAT ABOUT THIS LINE???? -> Raise flop + 2nd barrel turn to protect from flushes and to get him of hands like A5 and also for free sd.

      Hello Farmarchist,

      The problem on such flops is that you ain't really making any pairs nor draws to fold anyways and overall the value is pretty thin with just Ace high. Therefore without even having any backdoors I'd rather just fold cause I would assume that we don't have a lot fold equity here.

      Neither he doesn't donk his whole range by which we would assume that he does it with made hands or some semi-made hands against our equity is very small and neither we ain't far-far ahead.

      Against a fish just wait for a hand without having any great equity yourself and leave the pot alone, especially if he can't find a fold button. :)

      For example:

      Board: 5:club: 6:club: T:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    75.83%  75.59%   0.24% { QQ-55, ATs, A6s-A5s, KTs, K6s-K5s, QTs, Q6s-Q5s, JTs, T7s+, 97s+, 86s+, 76s, 65s, AcKc, AcQc, KcQc, AcJc, KcJc, QcJc, Ac9c, Kc9c, Qc9c, Jc9c, Ac8c, Kc8c, Qc8c, Jc8c, Ac7c, Kc7c, Qc7c, Jc7c, Ac4c, Kc4c, Ac3c, Kc3c, Ac2c, ATo, A6o-A5o, KTo, QTo, JTo, T8o+, 65o }
      UTG+1  24.17%  23.93%   0.24% { AhKs }

      Best Regards.
