      I would, but I don't know if it's right. Ace is an out for you here most of the times, but still, a pot-size donkbet makes me think I dont have enough fold equity here to raise.

      I think you should give this up at the flop. I think villain has either a K or a pocket like 88 or 99. I don't think that most of the players are able to fold a midpocket on such a limit if they donk potsize.

      And because you don't have enough FE and not enough implieds to call for the flushdraw you have to fold at the flop.
