      -----

      MP3 was unknown (70/60/0 over 10)

      Preflop: 3bet bluff. However, that goes against my assumption that unknown players are loose passive so I should just call IP.

      Flop: he donks smallish and I have some backdoor equity so I decided to raise as a bluff.

      Turn: he is committed so I just fold. If he had checked I would have taken a free card as we pick up only a gutshot. Or should I shove myself if he checks?

      Hi Dawidas,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Given our hand and this being a 3-bet pot I would recommend just folding this flop.

      Sure his donk may look weak but I don't think he is folding pairs or draws and i don't think he is donking garbage.
