      I don't mind the donk on the flop to much because I have position on him but the 2nd barrel just confuses me.

      UTG GaryTheIndian8 ($10.64)
      UTG+1 Perdz ($8.25)
      CO pcxonfire ($13.73)
      BTN Hero ($10.91)
      SB albpeter ($4.96)
      BB dicmrcrful ($8.22) 51/17 65 donk: N/A WTSD: 22 W$SD: 33 Notes: limp UTG 33

      Pre-Flop: ($0.15, 6 players) Hero is BTN 10:spade: A:club:
      1 fold, Perdz calls $0.10, 1 fold, Hero raises to $0.50, 1 fold, dicmrcrful calls $0.40, Perdz folds

      Flop: 10:heart: 3:diamond: J:spade: ($1.15, 2 players)
      dicmrcrful bets $1.15, Hero calls $1.15

      Turn: 6:club: ($3.45, 2 players)
      dicmrcrful bets $4.05, $4.05 to Hero ($9.26)?

      Well he's an aggro fish so it goes without saying most of what he does will be confusing. After 65 hands you should have a better idea of how he's playing postflop than I do for sure. Only thing I wouldn't do is jam cause I think it's quite unlikely he bet/calls with stuff that we actually beat unless he's completely insane, so calling the turn and calling any river will usually be a dominating strategy.

      If he has never donked out for pot before in 65 hands I wouldn't mess with this line too much, he could play any Jx+ hand like that and we're in deep trouble against those hands already. I'd just fold the turn and look for a pattern in future hands, if he's doing that more often than it seemed at first or I catch him slowplaying top pair+, I'll eventually become suspicious, just close my eyes and call him down with anything decent.

      Hope it helps.
