      Pre-flop: ($0.15, 9 players) Hero is MP3 K:heart: A:diamond:
      UTG calls $0.10, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.45, 4 folds, UTG calls $0.35

      Flop: 6:heart: T:club: 5:club: ($1.05, 2 players)
      UTG bets $0.65, Hero raises to $1.80

      Villain unknown. I guess that early limper most likely has low/medium pp, maybe connectors type hand. I assume that villain won't donk the flop with set so i guess it is ok to make semi-bluff with AK and he will often fold here?

      I would donk the flop with set, since its drawy.

      villain would (should) check raise flop w/ set imo, being hu he has to expect a c-bet. and with a 2/3 PS donk he won't get draws to fold anyway.
      in my experience villains had TPXK here most of the time, at least in hands where we got to a showdown.

      i don't know if i would raise flop, if he just calls you will have to bet hard on turn/river to get him off his hand. i would wait for a better spot. never bluff a donkey :D

      when he donks flop on this drawy board he is likely to have some piece of it and usualy wont give up just to a flop raise . So ... if you decide to raise you have to be prepared to fire some 2nd or third barrels on non :club: turn and river.
      i would just fold to his donk on this board . is much safer .
      on a dry board on the other hand raising is much better .
