      Kind of gross spot. I think Folding > Raising > Calling. I don't expect villain to give up OTT very often, which makes it really difficult for our hand, I don't want to turn this into a bluff catcher for 3 streets, so I'd just fold it here, donk bets on these types of board are mostly over pairs/sets, occasionally 3x and Ax.

      If we raise, we can get called by worse, namely 3x and A2,A4, sometimes Ax (negligible part of his range). It's not really important though because we can probably get to showdown vs better hands much cheaper than if we flat. Still fold OTF though.

      As played, would also fold that turn card, and probably every other turn that doesn't improve our hand.

      If villain checks the turn, I'm probably 3/4 potting it for a free showdown and charging 3x, but this is going to happen really rarely in this spot.

      Preflop I'm folding this hand.
      I'm only raising it against people who are tight and fold a lot postflop.

      On the flop calling is fine. With our hand we want to keep the pot smaller.

      On the turn I don't mind folding. We are now beat by 67 also there are some other hands that beat us.
