      UTG: $4 (80 bb)
      Hero (MP): $5.46 (109.2 bb)
      CO: $5 (100 bb)
      BTN: $6.77 (135.4 bb)
      SB: $5.13 (102.6 bb)
      BB: $9.50 (190 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with A K
      UTG posts BB OOP, UTG checks, Hero raises to $0.20, 4 folds, UTG calls $0.15

      Flop: ($0.47) A Q 9 (2 players)
      UTG bets $0.20, Hero ?

      First hand against the villain. In this type of board what should i do against a donk bet?

      Hey,

      Especially when you have a piece of the flop, the way to go is to raise donk bets. In this case you raise for value but biggest reason usually is that you need to know what people are thinking when leading so when you have equity, raising is the way to go, even though sometimes it's between value and bluff given your hand. If he leads 2/3 pot or more, this changes and calling becomes more common with mediocre to good hands and you should raise a bit more polarised.
