Villain no hands, but name suggest that he might not be a joke machine, but not reg either (no hands), also large stack so he got it right just while ago. Winning big just while ago can make person to overplay too, you know! (like me)

Question: Should I fold the river? He is either bluffing or winning, right?

It just that his donk bet with strong hand is a bit funny, maybe he could protect TT, or 78 with agression. All his bets were insta bets.

4 folds, SB raises to $0.15, Hero raises to $0.44, SB calls $0.29

Flop: ($0.88) 6, 5, 5 (2 players)
SB bets $0.55, Hero calls $0.55

Hi brave,

For me this is a stack off, and it's not really close. We resteal preflop (with no reads, meh) and flop super strong, and he donks into us. It's very unlikely he's doing this with 66, so I feel like we are effectively nut-ted here. Can he be winning on the river? Sure, I can see 87 or 99 (TT may or may not check the turn to us). Can he be betting more worse hands than this? Sure, a number of worse made hands and probably some bluffs as well. So as played I will snap this in and have no regrets the relatively few times I lose.
