      I would probably overlimp because raising a hand like J9 into multiple stations means at least one will call and then outkick you and never fold. I would iso against one limper.

      Donks mean different things from different players...I would be tempted to raise if I had air to bluff or raise with a good hand for value. Calling flop here looks best because you often have the best hand and raising folds out hands you beat. I'm not folding turn or river because we get good odds, also villains take this line with worse made hands & draws sometimes.

      Hello yankomania,

      Guess we could even throw a raise on the flop to protect cause often times those donks are rather weak hands and maybe even draws.

      If you go for way ahead/behind for the given odds I don't really see how I can fold my hand.

      Best Regards.
