      Hi,
      How should I play against his donk bet? The board is dry, should I just call?

      Thanks!

      Both calling and raising are fine lines on this board.
      Raising x5 is too much. There aren't worser hands who will call this big raise. (He is probably on a small PP) .x2.5 will enough here.

      Hello,

      Your play is definitely find and I like your raise, (pot+2x his raise, while usual raise for protection would be pot+3x his raise). I don't mind extracting value from fishes with raising like that.

      Best regards,
      Rensu
