      Hero shows a pair of kings(Q K).

      BB wins with two pairs, kings and nines(K 9).

      opp 24/16 ..agg.f 0.9 - which actually made me suspicious why he started to donk into me.. But since the price wasnt that bad, I decided to call that down..
      Mistake or can he show up there with worse hand ? I was thinking maybe JJ or QQ ( he has 1% 3bet over big sample ).

      Passive isnt donking into you with underpair. The most likely worse hand you could see here would be KJ.

      Its hard not to call down his weak half pot bets, but you have to consider that you are more often behind with TPGK on that board (where KT, K9, K7 have all made 2 pairs) as soon as the passive BB starts donking. When passives bet instead of just calling you down its very often time to go away.

      I think calldown is reasonable
      He sometimes have there KJ, sometimes 9x, JJ, QQ, sometimes missed draws
