      villain is 20/8 on 100 hands sample, when facing PFR he donkbet 35% of the time and raise 50% of the time.

      Here is the hand:

      Full Tilt Poker
      No Limit Holdem Ring game
      Blinds: $0.10/$0.25
      9 players
      Converter

      Pre-flop: (9 players) Hero is MP3 with K A
      UTG folds, UTG+1 calls, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1.1, 4 folds, UTG+1 calls.

      Flop: T 3 6 ($2.55, 2 players)
      UTG+1 bets $1, Hero calls.

      Turn: K ($4.55, 2 players)
      UTG+1 bets $2, Hero calls.

      River: 4 ($8.55, 2 players)
      UTG+1 is all-in $20.9, Hero folds.
      Uncalled bets: $20.9 returned to UTG+1.

      Results:
      Final pot: $8.55

      I thought fold on the flop would be the best option, but since he is so agressive I might still have the best hand. No way I can call his shove though, am I correct?

      Fold is fine on the river.
      I would fold flop or re-raise to 4$ for fold equity+ he would probably giove me two free cards.
      I would also re-raise turn for free showdown, value, protection.
