      Small sample on villain. Doen't seem to raise a lot. Is the call pre ok? Don't see a point in 3betting his tight range. On the flop don't want to play c/c and the line donk/shove should be able to generate more FE than a c/r. Your thoughts?

      Pre flop is definitely a call, if we had an off suit a4 I would 3bet of fold, but suited ace plays well enough so that we can call :)

      I usually don't have a donking range, however here it could be good. When we donk villain could 1) raise with a bad hand that will r/f like 78 2) raise for value and then think uh ohhh when you shove and fold like q10 3) he could jsut fold and we win which is fine with a hand like 55.

      The times we do get it in we have the nut flush draw so thats completely fine.

      WP imo :)
