      Hello IhasLuck,

      He isn't donk-betting, he is just betting vs missed CB. But I'd rather Check the flop already myself unless I assume the guy is going to Call you very loose. Doesn't make sense to CB the flop and then turn your hand into bluff-catcher while he will have a lot of Ax hands in his range.

      Rather Check/Call the flop and let him at least bluff with some weaker PPs as TT/JJ/QQ or whatsoever which most likely wouldn't pay you much vs a CB.

      I would assume such bet sizes are just trying to drag you along while he is trying to get thin value from your hand.

      Best Regards.

      Yeah misread the hand when i posted it. Ok but while I'm oop c/calling the flop will leave me clueless at where I stand, since it's zoom and I barely have any stats on op. What's my play after c/calling? c/fold the turn? call again if the bet is small (like the bet in this situation) ?

      Yes, that's usually my plan cause I assume he wouldn't be bluffing that often in 3bet pot and especially on such a card.
