Unknown villain.

Is it better to check/raise flop in stead of donkbet ?

Call his raise OTF? How often is this AA?

Calling preflop is a mistake against a CO 4B. Shove or fold preflop.

If you don't feel comfortable going with it, don't 3b pre in the first place. I really don't like donking here. You rarely get called by worse and isolate the part of his range that beats us.

I'd just x/c down.

Hi rk,

I agree with dirt and birdayy on the preflop action.

Post flop I think we can only check/call down here like birdayy suggested. Donking out lets his QQ and AQ type hands off the hook, while never folding out better holdings.

It is AA 100% of the time that it's not AK or KK.

He had JJ and paid me off nicely in a 2run. Won both.

I'm starting to get comfortable , just wanted to know your opinion about hands like this.


I understand why x/c is the best way as played and Shove pre should be the right move.

Thanks!
