      I presume I can't fold TPTK against villain's stats and stack size? Donk pot looks more for fold equity than a value hand, so I feel I have to close my eyes and call him down.

      Hi Member001,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Pot size donks are generally not that strong so calling to let him bluff is perfectly fine.

      And that turn shove should be an easy snap call. It sucks that he got there on the turn but I'd play it the same.
