      Hi,


      I don't really suspect the donkbet of anything, lots of fish will donk/call random pairs or draws on such boards. For that reason it's usually a lot better to raise for value and take it from there.

      Once his line turns into a bet/3bet tho I usually let it go unless I have some reason to believe he is an aggressive fish, it's just way too strong a line coming from tags and passive fish to mess with with TPTK when in doubt.


      Hope it helps.
