      :diamond:O n the Flop:
      Not sure what to make of his small donk, so i raise it.
      :diamond:O n the Turn:
      At this point there were a lot of straight/flush posibilities, but i think that he could also hold a hand there that i have beat, so i call hoping to see a free showdown.
      :diamond:O n the River:
      Just a call to see the showdown.

      Hello mayapnd,

      Depending on the opponent but often I'd even prefer to fold it just on the flop, since we will never know where we stand with our TP type of hand when we even hit it on turn or river. Those NL2 opponents are Calling so loose even if you raise there they could easily Call with just bottom pair. Otherwise I'd fold definitely on turn, since we have shown so much strength and he still keeps betting that big into us. We are likely behind.

      Best regards.
