      Really?

      I didn't donk but I tried to grab the pot because sometimes at that limit if they don't hit they will fold. If CO calls or raises I know he is kind of serious. He is at the CO too, doesn't mean he has a good hand necessary no?
      I could be wrong but thanks for the tips.

      If you're gonna donk it, at least make it >1/2 pot. But here I wouldn't do that. Just play it for set value OOP. Maybe call 2 smallish bets on flop and turn. After donk flop /check turn I'm almost certain you have a weak holding and I would bet turn bet river.

      I think donkbet flop is fine. You´re often ahead and protecting your hand. I´d only make it larger to 0.14$ that players doesn´t raise me as bluff too often
      c/c turn is also reasonable. Since Kx paired likely you doesn´t have K. So you can bet again, but i think also fine is c/c to try to get your hand to showdown, get information and beat his floats on the flop

      villain is 16/9 and your telling him that a cbet isn't profitable? its true his range has a lot of kings in it, however 8 cents into 18cents is alright, just make sure hes gonna fold more than 50% of the time imo.

      Thanks.
      Makes me feel better about my play. You got a lot of work these days so I should wait for your answers because most people tell me other stuff lol.

      Thanks again.
