      Hello BigAl123456,

      Preflop: Fold it preflop, it will be hard to play your draws OOP and also even if the Ace comes, you will never know if you are ahead. Also BUs stack is way too small to try something fancy.

      As played
      Flop: Donking out here is reasonable since sometimes we have to take initiative postflop to play such hands profitable.
      Turn: But I would likely just Check/Fold or either Check/Call depending on his bet, most often just Check/Fold since he doesn't have much left.

      Best regards.
