Default Re: Gosh... AQ against a donk. Party 30+3 w/ 250 entrants

I hate messing with donks, because they tend to be calling stations. The only hand you are beating on the flop is K high, in my opinion, with maybe an AJ, A9 if she has liberal raising standards. I would give up once the donk raised you on the flop. She's serious about something, which probably isn't a whole lot, but it has to beat AQ. Odds of you getting her off of it are very slim after she raised preflop and then tossed in a re-raise on the flop.

I don't think this is quite true. Firstly, her raise PF was SCREAMING "let me raise in LP to try to steal", so I really put her on any two. On teh flop I'm ahead of basically any two broadway cards except AK or a pair. Villian could also have any pair 99 or below and think I have a T. I thought there was a lot of value to leading out and hopefully scaring her out of her attempt to steal PF thinking to herself "oops, I got caught stealing, darn".
