      Villain was playing very loose, and also 3betting very light, so I didn't give him much credit. He min-3bet so I felt ok calling. Donking on the flop was questionable, but because he was playing so loose I thought he might give up the hand if he didn't have a K. When the Q hit, my goal was to get him all-in by the river.

      Preflop I prefer stacking off here and I'd go broke with QQ+, AK.

      Why do we donk the flop here?
      I'd check/call once and give up on the turn if he continues with the aggression.

      As played on the flop, turn and river are fine.
