Villain open limps in SB, we check. He donks flop, we raise...
Pygmy, I love the discussion here on playing against a donker. In my experience, there are 2 types of donkers: those that can b/f the flop and those that can't. The guys that can't b/f the flop also almost always fire the turn barrel with air if we just-call the flop. It shows they are less sophisticed (not reading boards as well, don't understand ranges, etc).
Against these unsophisticed guys, I think waiting until the turn on tons of boards is +EV. For instance, raising this flop as a pure bluff isn't as good because he will not immediately fold. However, if we wait until the turn with a huge range, including Ax, FD, QJ, stuff like suited wheel gutters that we peeled with this plan, he is going to have a really hard time. He's going to b/f a lot of stuff on the turn, we get the 2nd barrel bluff a lot, or max value for Ax. I would just call again w/ Kx and a lot of PP and play the 'call or bet when checked to' game. This seems to win the most/lose the least against these guys. With baby PPs, I've been considering a FSDR on the Turn here as well to protect against all 2-overs hands (like his shown Q9o) from seeing the river.
Against donkers that will b/f or not always fire the turn with air, we should be bombing the flop with all of the above. The bluffs/semi-bluffs are cheaper and we move our value range to this street as well for balance.
These thoughts have worked very well for me against donkers. Also, if the table sees you do something 'funky' like wait till the turn with a FD and fire the river against this donker, they may make very poor assumptions of your play. Basically, you can tilt the table sometimes.
