      I am clueless against donkbets, but from what I've seen so far when they donk they rarely fold to raise. I am raising flop for value, but what to do on turn? I dont want to make huge pot with not so strong hand, also I have double gutshot. I dont improve on river and he continues to bet. Seriously I don't think he can have anything less than Kx.

      Hello Huseens,

      You have pretty thin value on the flop anyways there but of course it's possible. But if you are raising for value there then no way I am folding for the given odds on the river.

      Best Regards.
