50NL: BB is short, ~50BB

Hero raises to 3BB from CO with :Kd:Ts , BB Calls

Flop(~6BB) :Ks:4d:2s

V donks 10BB


This action really confused me, and I folded, but would love to hear your thoughts on this action.

I feel like I have range advantage on that flop and my KT is ahead of most of his hands, but he's basically saying he wants to stack off, and he's just a bit too deep to take top pair all the way (SPR ~8).

If he donks 4BB here, I'm raising, and I'm definitely cbetting if checked to. But I don't have a strategy to face the overdonk.

Based on my confusion here, I'm thinking about how to use the overdonk myself. Any ideas for incorporating the overdonk into a BB defending strategy?

    Certainly you will need to defend all your kings on the flop, as you are even overfolding to a large bet if you let this go. His polarization is indicating hands like 35ss or 4sXs, which you will have perfext clarity against IP.

    Just comes down to if you think ure opponents will include vulnerable hands like 99/Ax , along with his strong hands KQ/ sets ... the more of the vulnerable could exist then u have a clear continue
