      BTN: $14.64 (366 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with K K
      Hero raises to $0.16, 4 folds, BB calls $0.12

      Flop: ($0.34) Q 8 8 (2 players)
      BB bets $0.16, Hero calls $0.16

      Turn: ($0.66) 2 (2 players)
      BB bets $0.56, Hero calls $0.56

      River: ($1.78) 3 (2 players)
      BB bets $0.96, Hero calls $0.96

      Results:
      $3.70 pot ($0.18 rake)
      Final Board: Q 8 8 2 3
      Hero showed K K and won $3.52 ($1.68 net)
      BB showed 2 4 and lost (-$1.84 net)


      BB is an Unknown, on the Flop when Donked into I think I like calling becuse there is less hand that can call if I raise when the board is QHigh compaired if the board was like 8High and I have the BD 2nd NF to back me up. I think on the River I can still call because odds are fairly good and I have undereped my hand by calling?

      Hello,

      I don't think we have much to comment about preflop.

      Calling the flop is fine without much information.

      On the turn calling again is just fine.

      I don't think we can fold the river given these odds so calling is ok.

      So without much information I'd prefer to go on the safer side and just call down and make a note.

      Best,
      Plamen

      How about r/f the flop 2.5x?

      I don`t think villain would 3bet worse hands VS pre-flop UTG raiser.
      He most likely would call with Qx, FD`s, maybe 99-JJ.

      I don`t really think, he`s donking here as a pure bluff.

      Too much FPS, maybe?

      I don't like raise folding here against unknown because we don't really know anything about him.

      For example, since he showed up with 24o he can easily try to rebluff us with a min 3-bet or larger 3-bet.

      If I raise I would do it for pure value against draws and Qx. If he does make a huge 3-bet then we can consider folding.
      But since we know nothing about the guy calling is my preferred option (this deep).

      The turn is not a great card so I'd continue calling with a plan to call any river.
