      CO: $36.38 (181.9 bb)
      BTN: $20 (100 bb)
      Hero (SB): $20 (100 bb)
      BB: $21.26 (106.3 bb)
      MP: $14.80 (74 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with T T
      MP raises to $0.40, CO raises to $1.50, BTN folds, Hero calls $1.40, 2 folds

      Flop: ($3.60) K T 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      Turn: ($3.60) J (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.40, CO calls $2.40

      River: ($8.40) 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $6.30, CO calls $6.30

      $21 pot ($1.05 rake)
      Final Board: K T 8 J 6
      CO showed J J and won $19.95 ($9.75 net)
      Hero mucked T T and lost (-$10.20 net)

      stats is 22/11/115 and af1.0 and 6.0 3bet.
      I think he would call donk with Kx and QQ or so.
      Moreover,if check backed I would be difficult situation.
      So should i donk?

      Postflop you played it fine but I think it's a clear fold PF. No odds to hit your set, your oop so it's hard to extract value and not get sucked out if you hit and you would have to give up almost always if you don't hit.

      Hello Gonchan,

      Preflop: We are getting almost Call15 rule here so if you assume his 3betting range is stronger and we can set-mine then sure, we can do it.
      Postflop: Nah, most likely I would be donking. Rather let him CB also with weaker hands and maybe even non-made hands. Just the range of made hands is going to continue here.

      Best Regards.
