      Hello Belgas,

      Flop: Why did you bet so weak? I would likely just make a normal bet, ~$0.20 should do it and hope for someone to make the loose Call, maybe even with GS or just Qx type of hand.
      Turn: As he decides to donk in I'd just raise for value to try to make the pot ready to shove any river.

      As played
      River: There are a lot of hands with what he could be shoving here but of course KJ could be one of those hands since we just gave him perfect odds for a GS what was a mistake, I'd Call there since I expect villain to shove with a lot weaker hands like wear set, maybe even 2pair and something similar. Only reasonable hand what villain could have and what beats us is KJ.

      Best regards.
