He called pf so KK+ it's not likely. Then he led a 4way pot - very strong, when he reraised I put him on 2 pair+
Is my train of thought accurate?
If leading here shows so much strength, shoul I just call and reevaluete on later streets?

I think you played this hand about right. When villains start doing strange minbets all the time - it normally means they're super strong and they don't know how to properly value bet.

I think there's a couple of other hands been posted recently with similar weird minbets!

Hi Pray,

I generally prefer calling the donk bet here. While the action normally can indicate a 1 pair hand betting for info or protection, or a draw, I think you've tuned in correctly that leading into 3 opponents shows more strength. And we block the nut flush draw so know he can't be on that holding.

I mean, raising is not without it's merits, but getting 3-bet on the flop stinks and when we expect a stronger donking range, we'll face that more often. We don't really want to get shut out of seeing the turn when we have a couple back door nut draws we could pick up, in addition to the cards directly helpful to us like an A or 3, plus the ability to use our position to see how he responds.
