      I think KQs might still be a bit loose from MP2, but I don't know how the table was playing...

      As played, this looks like the same issue I am struggling with. I was about to say that there are very few hands that beat you, so you should call... but I gave in and read the spoiler. I realized my own justification for calling such a large and aggressive bet is what constantly eats into my profit. When huge aggression is shown, unless you have the nuts, you are often beat. Calling is just giving money away.

      Hey PhoenixPhreak,

      Even I m not happy to see his donk I would also go for a call since I would still assume that he should be capable of having weaker Qx hands that we beat and that would play the same way.

      Best regards,
