      No-Limit Hold'em, $1.00 BB (8 handed) - Hold'em Manager Converter Tool from

      saw flop | saw showdown

      MP2 ($21.50)
      CO ($174.75)
      Hero (Button) ($20)
      SB ($126.30)
      BB ($165.75)
      UTG ($14.70)
      UTG+1 ($54.05)
      MP1 ($100.50)

      Preflop: Hero is Button with A, Q
      UTG calls $1, 4 folds, Hero raises $5, 2 folds, UTG calls $4

      Flop: ($11.50) 6, 8, 9 (2 players)
      UTG bets $4, Hero ?

      His donkbet was like 24% which is pretty high, I put him on a draw but im not sure what to do here... folding seems pretty weak..

      Folding seems weak yes, but what are the alternatives?

      Calling: Gains you no extra info about villain. If fold comes as no help to you which there is a pretty high chance of, and he donk bets again - you are just being drawn into a lost pot imo.

      Raising: Gives you a chance to make him lay it down. Often this bet on lower limits means weakness but I'm inclined to suggest that because his donkbet % is so high that he might have a piece here.

      In conclusion, if you think he is on a draw then I push for max FE. Folding, although painful, seems like the correct option or it has less variance at least.

      he limps from utg and donks nearly half the pot

      you just have around 4 discounted Outs

      his flop AF is not hyper aggressive

      his W$SD is 56%, he knows when he should bet

      i definitely fold

      Pretty marginal spot IMO.

      This villain seems too loose from EP which mean that a ton of his hands connect with this flop one way or another. Even if we are ahead here it is not likely to be too far.

      Just under a psb behind so folding does not want to be undertaken lightly. If villain has generated these stats with a <20BB stack then he is crap and possibly deserves little credit. Chances of him folding are >0.

      I'd raise.

      1) I'm a SD monkey.

      2)I'm curious.

      3)Raising is unlikely to be a big mistake considering the odds whilst folding could be a bit of a howler.

      4)My self-esteem plummets when I fold versus these micro-stacked-donks.

      I am SD monkey nr.1 but easily fold here :P

      lowboard totally hits his range and even if he just has a fd he has 15 outs and we are flipping

      we dont even have backdoors
