he always called my steal and I had to give it up on an ugly board. (88 on AKT, 77 on KJ2) So I'm interested in such spots in general. Which hands you hold on? Any queen , KT, JT, what about AK ? 99er? Surely much is baesd on reads, but right now it seems like many villians take profit of the fact we have a marginal hand stealing the blinds and move us on the flop.

Flop: ($28) T, 5, Q (2 players)
SB bets $14.00, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

Final Pot: $28.


if he has a high donk flop factor i would be tempted to a small bluff reraise on the flop

to adornit: sounds really exciting the way you say it ;)

sklansky push would be my line

if you give him an edge postflop
shoving pre is an easy way to avoid such a situation

concerning the more general part
villian doesn't hit the board more often 'cause he always raises
so the more he donks the lower are your requirements to play back/go broke
