      Hard to say without knowing anything about this guy and your dynamic with him. If he's an unknown and he's 3betting right of the bat on your first steal attempt i'll usually give him a chance to c-bet his garbage hands on the flop by checking to him planning a call down and i'm never folding, unless maybe the board becomes horrible :p

      Donk/shoving is a worse line without history in my opinion, you'll get him to fold anything that isn't QT+ or a big draw. Once you start messing with him a bunch and you think he'll interpret your line as a bluff/semibluff then it makes more sense as a way to felt TPGK for value, but you better be sure that he understands blind battles and can call it off with worse hands, because most 6max players at nl10 don't and won't.

      Hope it helps.
