      Hello MeAmor22,

      Rather would not advice to play such hands cause they make you just trouble, especially being in such a multiway pot where you very likely even get called.

      Vs even a pot size donk it's already pretty close cause I assume such a player is willing to bet the turn again, so what's the purpose of calling flop and then folding on the turn?

      Best Regards.

      So his stats are 19/3/8 vpip/pfr/AF 32 hands.So i belived he is doing the donk bet to scare me because of the A. so i called because i hope that he will play chk on turn, but the second barrel=pot size was for me scare so i put him on AX and my kicker is not so good so thats why i folded.

      Yes, it's still fine to fold, especially while we don't get the good odds but as said already on the flop his line was really strong.
