      No-Limit Hold'em, $2.00 BB (9 handed) - Hold'em Manager Converter Tool from

      saw flop

      MP1 ($91.95)
      MP2 ($253.45)
      Hero (MP3) ($41.75)
      CO ($50.70)
      Button ($120.75)
      SB ($201)
      BB ($68)

      UTG ($184.25)
      UTG+1 ($224.10)

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A, K
      2 folds, MP1 calls $2, 1 fold, Hero bets $9, 3 folds, BB calls $7, 1 fold

      Flop: ($21) 3, Q, J (2 players)
      BB bets $4, Hero ?

      Donkbet can be KQ/KJ/AQ/Set/2Pair/FD/OESD

      Safest thing is to muck but betting 2bb into a 10.5bb pot and then mucking is too weak... Shove or Call & evaluate?

      If villain pins you down at A K it would be profitable for him to call with any hand containing a Q, J, 3 or flush draw.

      he looks very lose and a little fishy, i would never fold to a min donk bet looking at his stats and considering your outs. i would either call or raise depending on how he played previous hands as he donks 25% of the time.

      If his small_donkbet_range is as tight as you think it is then shoving the flop is pretty neutral EV-wise. Folding to reduce variance seems fine.

      Calling could lead to a lot of difficult turns and is obviously terrible if villain is likely to fire a reasonable 4th street bet (eg. if his range is strong).

      Looking at villain's AFq/WSD/W$SD/WWSF(?) he seems to be betting the 2nd best hand fairly often (perhaps bluffy/running bad) so on the basis of these stats (+call open) I'd just shove. It also feels good to raise a donk-bet.

      If villain really donks only the hands you put him on, then it's an easy muck imo, but I would say his donking range is much wider, at least for some bluffing frequency and thus I would push against this 33/5 guy.

      88 hands isn't enough for any of postflop stats, so I would take them with caution...

      Wow, thats an unbelievably tight mindonk range you just put him on. Is that range based on Reads?

      if you see foldequity, you should push directly.
      if there is no foldequity, its better to just call the donkbet i think.

      no way i fold this hand here in my opinion.
      i would push
