  1. You have to be able to read the donk mind. He's scared because he really wants to move up, but nobody has enough chips left for much of anything. It's probably been a long time since he's seen a flop and, despite how stupid it really is, he limps with some low connectors in the hopes you'll just check and he can play the flop.
