Hi dirt,

I don't see anything wrong with raising the donk bet to try and isolate him and protect our equity from hands like 77 and Ax... or get value from the same.

It's a pretty freakish series of events, and they are all bad events for us. The player who's deep stacked and has position cold calls our raise. Then a turn card comes that favors the player who has position. I would probably check and fold to any reasonable bet at this point. He doesn't have to have a straight to beat us, his action is consistent with sets as well, and I am not sure he's going to simply bet with a hand like TT at this point seeing as he's somewhat passive so far. Gross spot, but if we do give it up we still have 42 bbs to work with, not the end of the world.
