      Hi,


      NH then :) Weird for him to be donking pot in that spot if he has something strong, which would also require him having not 4bet preflop. Maybe Qx fits somewhat if he's aggressive since he's obviously bad. Your call really.


      Hope it helps.

      Yeah i figured since he min raised, and flat called my raise, that he was either on lower pocket pair, or Ax, possibly Axs.

      The pot sized donk bet really gave me the gut feeling that I had him beat. The flop had no flush draws, and the low straight draw which could have been in his range of Ax. I figured if he had something, he'd be value betting since the flop wasn't too dangerous for him if he actually had a hand.

      To be honest, I'm not pushing over the top if his stack isn't so small. I would have just raised to see where i stood.
