      Preflop: Hero is SB with A, K.
      6 folds, Hero raises to $0.06, BB raises to $0.18, Hero calls $0.12.

      Flop: ($0.36) 9, J, J (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.17, BB raises to $0.64, Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.53.

      This a bit more rock&roll that what I usually do. I found the spot quite good. I've a read that Villain 3bet the broadway even OOP. I decide to donk since I'm still ahead of AQ, KQ, AT, KT. It's suppose to be a close protection bet to avoid a rather weak ch/f and force Villain to fold if he doesn't hit. If a diamond or a T arrives, it also gives me some more outs.

      What do you think?

      Hello EinsteinFranck,

      Preflop: just 4bet vs the 3bet if you assume it's loose.

      As played
      Postflop: Doesn't really make sense to donk cause you would rarely do that with made hand. :)

      Best Regards.
