      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:


      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      CO (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A, J.
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.62, BU folds, SB calls $0.52, BB folds.

      Flop: ($1.49) 4, 3, 9 (2 players)
      SB bets $1.00, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.49.

      when I have nothing,how to play against donk?
      I usually just fold to more than 70% pot bet.
      but I just feel he has nothing also.
      after this hand,this opponent called 3 times and he donked everytime.
      if against tight players,fold is obvious but against players like him who have strange stats,I should not give up with the hands like ace high?

      Ace high is not = nothing.

      You have the best hand a lot. If not, you probably have 6 outs to your 2 over cards.

      Vs someone who donks >50% of the time, you can never fold Ace high here.

      Think about it from another perspective.

      If you raise in CO and I call in BB. If you cbet this Flop, I am never folding Ace Jack High.
