      UTG: $6.99 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 13, 3B: 5, AF: 1,7, Hands: 267
      MP: $7.67 - VPIP: 5, PFR: 2, 3B: 0, AF: 0,0, Hands: 41
      CO: $10.00 - VPIP: 18, PFR: 14, 3B: 5, AF: 2,0, Hands: 65
      Hero (BTN): $13.87 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 18, 3B: 5, AF: 4,7, Hands: 76463
      SB: $10.13 - VPIP: 36, PFR: 22, 3B: 14, AF: 3,9, AFq: 73, donkBetFlop: 100(2), Hands: 85
      BB: $4.53 - VPIP: 28, PFR: 13, 3B: 0, AF: 0,5, Hands: 47

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BTN with J :diamond: A :club:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.25, SB calls $0.20, BB calls $0.15

      Flop: ($0.75) J :spade: K :club: 4 :diamond: (3 players)
      SB bets $0.40, BB folds, Hero calls $0.40

      Turn: ($1.55) 3 :club: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.60, Hero calls $0.60

      River: ($2.75) 9 :diamond: (2 players)
      SB bets $1.10, Hero calls $1.10

      Tough to lay this down with these odds, especially since he already has donkbetted the flop twice before.

      1) Given that this is a 3way flop + the board is so relatively dry, what can I realistically ever expect villain to donkbet here with that I beat?

      Hi,

      Not sure if you have leak or is it your standard pre-flop raise size to open CO min-raise and at the BU 2,5x. If you adjusting your pre-flop raise consider strength of your hand (2x with J9 and 2,5x with AJ), then good players would very likely explode that

      I think you can´t fold flop, since he may lead with worse Jx hands and have draws or air. Since he is betting small on the turn and river I would call him down and adjust my play according to that: if he has draw, then I would raise his turn small leads, if he has Kx, then fold and if he has Jx then I would call him down

      best regards,
