    Donkey is a general term meaning bad player. Usually used when someone, who thinks they are a better player than their opponent, loses a pot to that person and utters: "Wow, nice call Donkey". or "You are a complete donkey!". Once and a while used even when someone wins a pot against a bad player, "I can't believed you called that bet, you donkey!"

    Also can be combined with the word bet, as in donkbet, meaning stupid bet.

    Or shortened to donk, which is usually used in a reflectionary way, as in "what a donk move I just made", or "I'm such a donk", or "I just donked off all my chips".
    If at first you don't succeed... well... so much for skydiving.

    3-bet - a bet, a raise, and then another raise. The third action is a 3-bet.
    b3b - Hero's plan is to bet, and then 3-bet if raised.
    sorry

    thats a 4-bet

    3-bet = BB, raise, + raise, BB is counted as the first raise.

    actually your correct but the BB is the first bet.

    You're both right!

    Considering BB is the first "bet", then any your actions after the BB is either call, fold, or RAISE.

    If you're on the flop however, if there's a bet, raise, and then a 3-bet.

    This and most people mess this up especially on the post flop. The first bet than the raise than the 3bet, 4bet etc...

    Many players don't understand cold 3bet cold 4bet etc either .
