      On the missed flop, villain without initiative min-donks, I chose to call. Turn I consider standard, yet villain donks river again. Was it OK to call, or should I rather fold?

      Hello meridius,

      Depends what kind of the villain is, I often like to raise such small donks and see them folding. Otherwise I'd fold it on river, he is betting near potsize and I expect him to do that very often with at least 2pairs.

      Best regards.
