      MP3 was 26/15/0 over 28.

      I should be 3betting this hand for value against this guy.
      However, I don't think calling is very terrible.

      My plan was to check/call flop and donk any turn. This way I get his cbet.
      I don't want to check/raise as if he calls or we get it in I'm behind.
      I am taking this line quite a lot (rather than check/raise which I do only for pure value).

      Donking. Any general comments on this line would be highly appreciated.

      I would prefer 3betting this preflop. Don't really enjoy playing this hand OOP postflop.

      What I see bad with this line in particular postflop is that:
      - he does not cbet much without equity on this board
      - we do not draw to the nuts and when we donk on a blank turn he is likely to call better FD's as well and we will have to deal with a river play.

      So without information I would be willing to just fold the flop and not get into spots where we don't really know what's the best thing to do.
