      i was having a sweat with an nl100/nl50 player and he said he was never folding here and suggested that i shove. when this guy donked out like that he is repping 72, pocket 77 and maybe some A2. other than that he has air. if i shove he may well call me with 88+. i never shove in this spot, but i might consider calling him. i said this, and was told that if i call the flop i have to call 3 streets because he will bebarrelling too. i'd like to know what my options are here. there are better spots to get the money in obviously and for that reason i prefer folding, but i just dont believe this guy has a hand here!

      Hello DrDunne,

      Why would you ever shove this spot? :D Be realistic... if you even want to get fold equity then $3 is enough there, you will never need to shove. I'd just leave it whilst I doubt that we are making many pairs to fold there anyways. He could easily have there some overpairs which donk like that and they ain't folding. Even JJ maybe. :)

      Best Regards.
