      UTG ($23.69) 118bb
      CO ($21.75) 109bb
      BTN ($23.42) 117bb
      SB ($21.40) 107bb
      cincinkid (BB) ($20) 100bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.30, 5 players) cincinkid is BB J K
      2 folds, BTN raises to $0.40, 1 fold, cincinkid calls $0.20

      cincinkid bets $0.90, BTN raises to $1.80, cincinkid raises to $5.80, BTN calls $4

      I think there are a lot more draws then straights/sets in his range.

      Hi.

      PF: Standard flat here

      F: Donking could potentially be a fine play but I think 3betting the Flop is overplaying your hand. He only ships stronger hands here, with a range of combodraws/sets/straights/better two pairs. You are isolating yourself vs better. Do you really think he raises AK/AA here in this spot, especially when you pot the Flop? I don't think so.

      I'm not too sure whether you should actually donk though. If he cbets all the time then checking makes way more sense than leading. Then again, I don't really like check/raising this flop and I don't really want to let my opponent check back the Flop so I think leading 3 streets is definitely a good option. He also shouldn't cbet too often when the board is so wet.

      T: Turn is a blank, so shove and hope for the best, after you already put so much money into the pot.

      Thanks.

      I think such a player could make such a minraise with AK since he maybe just thinks he hits well.
      I agree that villain would only ship with better hands after my 3B. And from that point of view i can't 3B/call for value.
      But looking at his huge range preflop he could always call with a lot of flushdraws.

      So should i just call the flop because i can't go broke and give him a cheap draw to his flushes because my equity is not that great vs his range anyway?
