      I raise his donk bet since I really don't give that any credit as to a hand that is beating you - often I think it is like 66/77/88 or some Ax or hearts. If you get reraised then it sucks but I think I would probably fold then. If he calls the raise I think I probably check the turn for pot control unless you improve and then i'll call a bet on the river if its not made any of the draws.

      I often raise donkbets, but many times i get called. So if they start betting again on the turn like 1/2 pot, should i fold?

      On this turn I would call because we really need to consider what he would donk again on the turn with. Not 33/55/22 because he'll probably try and slow play - and the 3 has not improved any of his other hands. So if we are ahead on the flop - we are ahead now so call imo.

      Sounds fine overall. I don't mind calling down either, he could be bluffing with overcards or valuebetting worse pairs that he might fold to raise.


      Hope it helps.
