      Villain 24/20/5.2 on 300h big sample size

      Is my donk here a good line to take? I donkbet out pretty often on boards like these against players who show a solid image, cause i think the only way he would continue is holding the NutFD...I asume any other A-high hands and maybe even pockets like 77-99 could fold...

      I think the donk bet would confuse villain, but not make him fold a overpair. If villain had Axo the bet is for value anyway. But if villain had 99+ he might put you on 55 or a FD or a combo draw and won't fold.

      Another possibility is if villain raise, how do you react to that? You won't be able to tell between a monster draw, say As5s or As2s, a overpair, say TT/QQ, and a possible bluff.

      You can play 3b/fold preflop against his OR range.

      Just checked, his Steal stat was 40, so i assume, that the 3b/fold pre could be a pretty good line here...

      Sounds ok.

      Villain wouldn't fold an overpair whether he's able to put you on a hand or not, most people will just call one bet automatically and in most cases they're right.

      If villain raises our donkbet we're folding, no point in continuing.

      Agreed on the preflop line, against predictable players you can go both ways. The tougher villain is, the less profitable it becomes to just call with small pairs, the more you should turn them into light 3-bets.


      Hope it helps.
