      Hi caoch,

      When he donks so small I think hes probably either semi bluffing or has a weak/medium strength hand that he doesnt really wanna call a decent sized bet with that he d rather bet himself. I dont think hes doing this with air or a set.

      Can I raise this flop as a semi bluff myself? Im getting great odds just call the flop and reevaluate the turn.

      OTT, a lot of the hands in his donking range could now have improved to 2pair, but also he could just be barrelling on the scare card, how would you play this?

      Alex :)

      Preflop I like 3betting, and I'd probably make it just 3x.

      On the flop I think that shoving might be a good line here.
      As you said, he'd probably have a medium-strength hand that he wouldn't like to face a huge bet with, so my plan will be to put maximum pressure on his range, so I will go broke here on the flop.

      As played on the flop I think that we have to call the turn. It's definitely not the easiest call, but then there are quite a few draws, and probably some weaker made hands.
