      UTG+2: $11.24 (112.4 bb)
      MP1: $8.05 (80.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K J
      3 folds, MP2 raises to $0.30, MP3 folds, CO calls $0.30, BTN calls $0.30, SB folds, Hero calls $0.20

      Flop: ($1.25) 6 K 2 (4 players)
      Hero bets $0.80, MP2 raises to $2, CO calls $2, BTN raises to $3.71 and is all-in, Hero folds, MP2 raises to $12.57, CO folds

      Turn: ($11.47) T (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($11.47) 7 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      $11.47 pot ($0.52 rake)
      Final Board: 6 K 2 T 7
      MP2 showed A K and won $10.95 ($6.94 net)
      CO mucked and lost (-$2.30 net)
      BTN mucked Q A and lost (-$4.01 net)
      Hero mucked K J and lost (-$1.10 net)

      Decided to call because of good odds, 2 weaker players in the pot and the PFR raiser has opened 64s,A2s from UTG.
      Maybe I should have folded PRE because I'm between REG and 2 weak players?

      I would definitely not call KJo in this spot. We have very dominated hand, we are OOP without the initiative, and also can't hit any good draws.
      So I'd rather squeeze here or fold.

      Donking the flop is fine by me. There are worse hands that could call.
      After the action I think folding is fine.

      I think the call is close, but I like your reasoning for calling.
      I think the donk bet is a bit loose. You didn't hit a great hand and unless everyone folds you're unlikely to take it down. Instead I'd check and hope for a cheap bet to call and look to improve, otherwise fold...

      Wow, and after reading the judges comments, I was off on both the PF call and the legitimacy of the donk bet... :f_cry:
      At least we all agree the fold was good! :f_p:
