      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BB with K :diamond: J :spade:
      2 folds, BTN raises to $0.20, SB calls $0.15, Hero calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.60) 4 :diamond: Q :diamond: 9 :spade: (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, BTN bets $0.30, SB folds, Hero folds

      What do you think about playing back in this spot vs this guy? I was tempted because of my backdoor 2nd nut FD + GS + 1 overcard + the fact that villain cBets only 1/2 here, but I guess it is just better to let it go and fold as we might not have much fold equity vs this guy, especially since he cBets in a 3way pot + the board hits him sort of well.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Vs a loose guy who rarely even folds draws there, nor of course not many pairs, not really. We either donk out ourselves or rather Check and leave it alone.

      Best Regards.

      The reason why donking is better than check/raising is because villain is likely checking behind a lot if he misses, whereas he is cBetting with a hit most of the time, right?

      Cause you can't Check/Raise here whilst his CBetting range will be towards made hand range very often and which ain't folding. If you get called your equity is very crappy, isn't it?
