n. in poker, a player who will call any bet rather than fold, even when their cards are bad. Named for the ignorant and unmoveable donkey, the "donk" won't ever move out of a hand and fold, no matter how much you bet. Thus bluffing does no good against donks, so you might as well not even try it. Especially infuriating when these donks end up getting lucky on the turn and the river, coming up with great hands when any reasonable person would have folded long ago. See also "calling station"
I had aces in the hole. I bet huge on all streets. This stupid donk keeps calling me with 7-4 offsuit, and hits a 7 on the turn and a 4 on the river to beat me. Man, do I hate donks.
