      UTG ($9.28)
      CO ($11.85)
      Hero ($10.55)

      Dealt to Hero A:diamond: K:club:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.20, fold, BB calls $0.10

      FLOP ($0.45) 6:spade: 3:club: Q:spade:

      BB bets $0.40, Hero folds

      BB wins $0.43

      Villain totally unknown.

      I'm never sure how to react to donk bets, I feel if I don't raise then villain can just continue betting and when we both have nothing he ends up winning. I've also seen many times when I raise villain will just end up assuming that I'm rebluffing and call with nothing leading me to not knowing where I stand.

      Folding looks quite good.
      We don't need to fight for every pot and I would suggest you to fold in such spots and not get yourself into trouble spots on turn/river where you are likely to lose a lot of money.

      I would continue here with some backdoor equity at least.
