      Stacks:
      UTG ($4.98) 125bb 51/2, AF: 6.5, donks 100% in HU pots, 63h
      UTG+1 ($5.28) 132bb
      CO ($2.58) 65bb
      HERO (BTN) ($4.36) 109bb
      SB ($7.73) 193bb
      BB ($1.76) 44bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.06, 6 players) HERO is BTN Q:spade: K:spade:
      UTG calls $0.04, 2 folds, HERO raises to $0.20, 2 folds, UTG calls $0.16

      Flop: K:heart: 2:diamond: A:club: ($0.46, 2 players)
      UTG bets $0.22, HERO?

      In previous hand he donked 3/4, this time it`s 1/2. Actually looks like a tell, he might be donk-bluffing with bigger sizings.

      In this spot, his limp-calling range ir more Ax heavy, so, should I give up on the flop?

      Hi.

      Don't read too much into his size. It's not like a min-bet or an overbet, so when there is only some slight variation, it could even be due to randomness. I don't think the fish necessarily has a fixed bet sizing for similar situations.

      Flop: I'll start with a call here. And then on future streets we decide based on the Turn card, timing and bet sizing on whether we can call or fold.

      Thanks.

      He`s was so active, that he would donk the turn almost always. So, should I call him down even with 2nd pair?

      Yeah don't fold the Turn. Decide what to do on the River, if he is always firing 3 times then you call the River as well.
