      Villain is fishy character that buys in for 60BB and I had seen him open pushing or pushing after one limper (in one case with AQ) preflop. I therefore see him limpcalling with a lot of worse hands and do not think this is a board that hits him so often. I get my necessary 37.5% equity against oesds and pocket pairs other than 88 and 99, so is my push alright with my reads?

      close decision, but i would push, too.

      that's because i would assume that an unknown villain would c/r with anything better than 22-77 (or an OESD).

      I would like to see villains donkbet% stat but I think I also push. There is not so much value for him in donkbetting over C/Calling to your *inevitable* cbet. Its often a bluff or at best low PP. If its not note him for future reference.

      Hey Tim64,

      I might be too weak, but I would fold to this donk bet as I find 21 hands too small sample size to make such decisions and can lead to high variance.

      However, going broke is probably not a mistake here as at least your overcard outs should be clean. But it's mandatory then to make a note of his play though.
