      Hi,


      When he donks out like that on JJ4r his range is incredibly weak most of the time (A9/KQ/33/77 type of stuff) and very strong the rest of the time (44/Jx). If he's weak he's very unlikely to continue putting money given how small he bet in the first place, if he's strong he's gonna call a bigger raise anyway, which is good because you want all the money to go in.

      So unless you've seen him go on with bluffs there for 3 streets before, just make a normal 3x raise and forget about the times he folds, the times you stack him for a full 130bb will more than make up for them.


      Hope it helps.
