      PLay is on anonymous tables... Villain is therefore unknown since i just sat down.

      Villains donk means nothing atm and could easily be a pure bluff a vbet w Q or some protection bet with some mid pp. Could aswell be a draw.

      I decide to call here... If villain is bluffing we can take it away OTT and we also have a FD and 1 overcard. When the K turn hits and he bets again im putting him on a range of Qx still wanting to protect, some Kx hands 22,55,KQ so i decide to call again with my tp and flush outs. If he bets and i dont impove on river i would probably fold my hand. But i hit my flush and when he checks i make a 1/2 pot bet to get value from Kx and maybe some Qx hands. How do u like my play?

      Hello RainbowPonny,

      How can you sit down 200bb. :f_o:

      About the play you should be raising the flop already vs the donk while his line usually is rather weaker hand. We also have decent fold equity. But otherwise I would Bet the river for bigger value, if he has something he is going to Call us down.

      Best Regards.
