      if you think your hand is strong enough to donk the turn, you should just 3bet on the Flop.

      Given that he has only 66bb and he seems a little fishy, I think he can have so many worse AX hands here. I also think he never has AJ and JJ, and rarely has AK too. AK would 3bet, and I think most passive fishy players will trap with full-houses as opposed to raising on the Flop. Thus I think you have the best hand really often.

      So i 3bet to 12 and shove the Turn.
