      Hero (CO): $16 (100 bb) 14/14/2.0/0.0/50/14
      BTN: $29.71 (185.7 bb)
      SB: $6.40 (40 bb)
      BB: $9.68 (60.5 bb) 53/29/3.2/11.1/29/41 No donk bets before this hand.
      MP: $16 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K T
      MP folds, Hero raises to $0.48, BTN folds, SB calls $0.40, BB calls $0.32

      Flop: ($1.44) K J T (3 players)
      SB checks, BB bets $0.64, Hero raises to $1.92, SB folds, BB calls $1.28

      I raise here thinking I'll fold to a shove cause I'd be in a very tough spot against a made flush. Surprisingly he just calls and I'm thinking he has a draw else he'd go all in.

      Turn: ($5.28) 5 (2 players)
      BB bets $7.28 and is all-in, Hero calls $7.28

      On the turn he randomly shoves, if he had a flush he'd want to slowplay here and why not shove the flop itself, why now? This is the second time he's donked into me in this hand. This makes me believe that a huge part of his range would be flush draws and I call with two pair.

      River: ($19.84) 4 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      $19.84 pot ($0.89 rake)
      Final Board: K J T 5 4
      Hero showed K T and won $18.95 ($9.27 net)
      BB showed K 5 and lost (-$9.68 net)

      I think it's a standard broke for 60bb against a 53/29 guy, who seems aggro postflop as well.

      Hello maheepsangari,

      Against such a stack it's not much to do here, I'd also just raise it for value and play for the stacks. Another option is to Call the flop and make the variance smaller and raise the turn.

      Best Regards.
