      Hi undercover82!

      I think a call on the flop is too weak. You don't know what you are up against if you just call and you don't want to see a T, 7, Q or K coming up on the turn. That's why I would try to protect my hand already on the flop and donkbet. Since the BB still has to act behind the BU, the BU needs a real good hand to call or raise. With AK/AQ, which are possible holdings, he will fold. If you get raised you have an easy fold and know that you are beat.

      Good luck at the tables!
