      Howdy,

      Preflop call should be fine given the price and we have position over SB (and he has full stack), but we just have to keep in mind our Ax may not be good if we hit, so if you have hard time folding in such a spots, you can avoids those spots by folding pre. Without SB in hand I'd fold pre.

      As played it seems fine to me. I wouldn't donk out flop, because I don't think we are doing so superb to play for stacks, so I prefer c/c flop and see turn action.

      Good luck!

      Hello YourDoom,

      fold pre? donk or check/raise flop? bet more on turn?

      Preflop:
      Actually I am not a big fan Calling here preflop, since the PFA has only 43BB, therefore I'd more often inclined to fold, also we don't know much about SB. But it ain't that big mistake if you even Call there, since we have SB also with us, on who we have position, just I would be scared to play against the shorty if we hit our Ace for example, we will never know where we stand.

      As played
      Flop: As long the MP2 was PFA, I don't really like donking since he could easily just raise us and we would be in trouble. I like Check/Call and taking the odds.
      Turn: I'd definitely bet more here, to extract value, we have to build up the pot and if not on turn then we will never get more value.

      Best regards.
