      Hi everyone,

      here I have KK and villain limp-calls. OTF comes an Ace and he donks almost 1/2 pot. I have absolutely no reads on him, so I do not know what to think of this bet and how to react. If I raise here, I should push since I would be committed anyway. But since we are still in the middle stage of the SnG and I have a decent stack left I do not like pushing here. If I call I still do not know where I stand and if villain bets/shoves on the turn I have a tough decision to make. So after eliminating a raise/push and a call I have to fold this hand. Is this to craven or how would you have played the hand?

      Seeing is stats he has some Ax on his range and it's possible that he donks very often with an A especially on this board with draws so folding it isn't the worst play since i expect a lot of A. Against a more loose player i don't mind to call here to see the turn since you have second pair and a backdoor flush and i expect that this type of players has worst hands and weak draws that bets.

      Cumps ;)

      Tricky spot for sure. I would at least call 1 street against most likely a fishy player and her-evaluate the turn. If he’s firing again I would fold unimproved.
