      Hey MeAmor22,

      Your flop donk is fine given the strength of your hand and the fact that there is a flush-draw out there.

      When you get raised you want to be really cautious in these spots. If you get all in and your opponent shows you a better kicker it is not a cooler. He doesn't just need a boat to beat you, any 5 with a better kicker has you in bad shape.

      It would likely be better to flat the flop, and maybe fold if your opponent puts in a lot more action.

      I forgot to say something abaout the villain.He is a fish so i suspect him doing that line with over pairs most of the time.
      Against a fish this line is ok?

      It's less bad against a fish - but I'd still flat the flop. Not sure how many overpairs he can really have when he completes in the SB preflop.
