      BB - Looked like a reg playing 21/16/Agg Freq 33% in 63 hands

      I thought he was either toying with me while holding a monster or just full of crap. I thought of folding, because it has that 'OOP player holding a big hand begging you to call' kind of line, but I think he's priced me in regardless?

      Thought his flop donk just had to be raised because a lot of turns could be scary, plus I was going to cbet about $0.14 anyways. Also thought it was highly unlikely he has 3x so thought a call was ok.

      Hey Philhellmutt,

      Normally it's the kind of flop you would flat vs a donk-bet, but since villain made his sizing so small I think your raise is fine.

      Turn bet for value is good, but I wouldn't bet any larger. You need flush-draws and 66 type hands to call etc.

      I think you should call river here. If he pots it, maybe you can fold. But 1/3rd pot looks like a blocker bet - he can have worse pairs and busted draws in his range.
