      Stats on BB

      Donkbet flop: 13

      Preflop: Hero is UTG+2 with K A
      Hero raises to $0.87, 6 folds, BB calls $0.62

      Flop: ($1.84) 7 6 6 (2 players)
      BB bets $0.75, Hero raises to $2.25, BB calls $1.50

      Turn: ($6.34) 2 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($6.34) 2 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      $6.34 pot ($0.31 rake)
      Final Board: 7 6 6 2 2
      Hero mucked K A and lost (-$3.12 net)
      BB showed 5 5 and won $6.03 ($2.91 net)

      BB's donking range could be 7x, pocket pairs, draws. I feel my hand is too good to fold as my overcard outs are clean mostly and I have backdoor flushdraw. I decided to raise to take some FEQ with me even though I'm not sure if there's any.

      On turn I'm checking back because he won't fold anything.

      How should I have played this? The problem is flop. Should I consider a fold there? Thanks

      for a raise you should know how much he folds to a donkbet raise.
      I think I would call the Flop donk. You only need 23% Equity and this player is a weak player, and if you hit an A or K you will get his stack very often.
      But if you look at his AF it isn't very high, so a fold is ok, too in my opinion.
