  • 5nl 6max, up against a donk

    villain VPIP/PFR 45/1 AGGR 2.5 villain was donking out all day long, either when someone was trying to isolate him or in limped pots. i raise from BB with ATs and when the flop comes he, of course, leads out. i decide to just call with my second pair in case he's got it, plus i've got BD equity and my hand could improve if a club turns. turn is a club which indeed improves my hand, he fires and i call drawing to the nuts. river is a blank and he fires again for a little over than 1/3 pot. should i call with my 2nd pair against a guy like this getting such a good price? how often 2nd pair is going to be good here?

    Hi Espada,

    I like your line here, and I would opt to call.

    His bet sizing is small (less than half the pot) on all streets. Sometimes we'll be getting shown a Kx hand here, but I think given the action we'll be shown easily enough QT, JT, and random 9 hands (as well as a few AQ/AJ busts) to make calling for this price profitable.

    Plus his range is basically capped at weak kings, which puts AT near the top of his range anyway, so make the call.
