      The preflop flat 3b and donk bet on the flop almost turns villain's range face-up, that is small pocket pairs, 88 - JJ. AK probably will either 4-bet pre or not donk like this. Whether villain plays JJ this way or not depends on your read.

      Therefore on the flop folding is fine but calling/raising is better IMO. If you call then you still have position and small pocket pairs' life becomes miserable because they are playing OOP and in the dark. Most of the time they shut down on the turn then you can do whatever you want :P

      Raising is even better IMO because now you represent a big overpair and have big fold equity to go with your draw with overcards.

      However if your opponent is the type that will never fold say 88 on this flop then folding > calling > raising.

      Hi,


      I don't 3bet AQo from these positions against full stacked UTG raisers, I just call.

      As played I'd call the flop since I don't expect many people at these stakes to actually bet/fold whatever overpair they have on that board, and getting 3:1 on a call with position, two overcards and a nutted backdoor we're actually doing pretty good by calling there if we don't expect villain to bet the turn into us too often.


      Hope it helps.
