Facing a Donk Bet – PPP #55

In this week’s episode we’re talking about what to do when facing a donk bet, in particular when you have two overcards to the board. Do you fold, call, or raise?

We also have a cash game hand where Hero finds himself with Top Pair Top Kicker. Should he barrel all streets, or slow down at some point?

Cash Game Hand 5 NL – Full Ring


BTN: $2.05 (41 BB – Folds pre)
SB: $9.93 (199 BB – Folds pre)
BB: $3.25 (65 BB effective stack) VILLAIN
UTG: $9.87 (Fold pre)
UTG+1: $2.33 (Folds pre)
UTG+2: $10.42 (Folds pre)
MP1: $5.00 (Folds pre)
Hero (MP2): $7.15 (155BB) HERO
CO: $8.33 (166BB – Folds pre)

Hero is MP2 with Ks-Ac ($0.07)

4 folds, Hero raises 3x to $0.15, 3 folds, BB calls $0.10


($0.32) Kc-Qs-Jh (2 players)

BB checks, Hero bets $0.21, BB calls $0.21


($0.74) (Kc-Qs-Jh) 5d (2 players)

BB checks, Hero bets $0.49, BB calls $0.49


($1.72) (Kc-Qs-Jh-5h) 8h (2 players)

BB checks, Hero bets $1.15, BB calls $1.15

Hero loses hand with top pair top kicker. We don’t know villain’s hand.

Did Hero overvalue his TPTK or did he make the right play?
