      Villain is unknown.

      PF: I open for value w 99s.

      Flop: Villain donks for 1/3 pot & I have a decision to make whether to just flat and let the player behind call or raise and risk forcing him out of the pot.

      I really put Sb on a wide range and he can be doing this w almost any of his calling range. E.g - One pair like 9x, Kx -- 2p like K9 -- GS like QT, QJ, & of course FD. PPs are pretty much out. Question is will I be able to extract more value from him if I raise? I think a recreational player like him w such a stack will.

      But is it worth the risk to flat and let MP call w great odds behind? I would think since Sb's bet is so small, even if I raised MP can still find a call w all his flush draws and even shove w Kx. Thus, I decided to raise in the end for max value.
