      Hi,
      Unless you have a read that villain often donkbets/folds small, I would just give it up, and wait for a better hand to raise. He will almost always have an overpair or a set here, so a raise isn't a good idea without reads. It would also be possible to call and re-evaluate the turn, but still, fold is best.

      Regards,
      Craig

      somehow I have the feeling most minidonks are very weak, dont u think? now this might be different since it is 3bet pot but in general shouldnt u raise in theese spots?

      I think Craig is saying that if you see he often min donks, then yes you can try to raise once in a while, and yes it is a sign of weakness. If you don't see him donking often, then just fold since you have no idea what it could be.

      The best is just to fold without reads, or call down with top pair +. It'll be the best hand most times, and it will allow you to get a read as well.
      And yes, small donkbets are often a sign of weakness, and thus can be raised lightly, but (I probably should've explained better) in this particular case - 3-bet pot and 3 low, co-ordinated cards - he will more often than not have a hand, so a fold is best
