      I am not sure what to do on flop. With QQ+ I think it is easier to call, since he can stack weaker PP and there are not many scare cards for us so we can let him bluff. JJ and TT are marginal imo, so I am not sure is it better to call down and let him bluff, or to raise flop and make him fold air and continue with stronger range than when he donks 3 times?

      Hi,

      It's not a clear decision but having JJ in your calling range vs a donk bet is good to strengthen the times you float AK, AQ type hands. That said, against his stack I think you can still get it in for value with JJ.. He won't fold 77, 8x, 99, TT and won't have enough 6x, 88 combos to make up for it imo.

      As played, call down > fold imo.. you have a very strong bluffcatcher compared to his range, only KQ, KJ, KT type hands got there on the turn and it's not always that he bombs river so he reps thinner than all Kx initially in his donking range.
