      I lost money on a very similar hand last night- villain had called my pfr on AK with 85o OOP and the flop came 85K. I think sometimes when calling stations suddenly donk-raise you're better just believing that they've got something than wondering what the hell it could be because people turn up all kinds of ridiculous hands after the flop at this level.

      In any case, even against an unknown, there aren't many worse hands he's taking that line with on the flop- the 3-bet min-raise looks particularly fishy to me.

      Hi,


      Hard to say without playing with the guy. I'd say most of the time i'm going broke on the flop against loose players for 55bb, tho when i feel something is wrong i sometimes just plain fold to the flop suckbet/min3bet line.


      Hope it helps.
