      First of all, why did you donk bet? And yes, I would fold here too, if he is raising such a dry board it means that he has solid hand and probably it's better than yours

      Hello dogmasrockets,

      Donking isn't wrong cause if you assume he is very often Checking behind there then sure, we can still donk it there to avoid Check behinds and maybe facing some overcards then and will be difficult to Call. And afterwards without even knowing the opponent it's still fine to fold, we don't have that much beat.

      Best Regards.
