      I raised flop because of his small bet. Since my raise was big I think he is more often on medium A or better then on FD, so I gived up. Is it wrong?

      Hello Oly0909,

      Nopes, I like the raise there as well and also the sizing seems to be somewhat fine. Otherwise I am also Checking behind and hoping to see a free showdown. Those kind of small donks are very often weak hands or either maybe even draw.

      Best regards.
