      Hero (BTN): $4.10 (102.5 bb)
      CO: $4.24 (106 bb)
      BB: $1.29 (32.3 bb)
      UTG: $1.83 (45.8 bb)
      MP: $1.22 (30.5 bb)
      SB: $4.79 (119.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A 9
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.12, SB folds, BB calls $0.08

      Flop: ($0.26) J 7 4 (2 players)
      BB bets $0.12, Hero ??

      Villian is 45/29 and I later got a better read on him but I am wondering how to deal with a donk. I personally thought about raising him here, but then I thought he is donking, and it is showing something. I have done this before in SnG's I just end up getting called in a huge pot, which I end up c/f the turn anyway, Was my line in thinking correct or not? I mean the board hits his wide calling range, but I just gave it up because I wouldn't know what to do if I got called.

      Hi Chowchow12,

      I don't think we can do much agaisnt a short stacker. If he has full stacked I would've probably suggested you to raise him and get a read on him. Vs this guy folding is probably fine.

      Best regards.
