      I'm not sure that I'd isolate a limp from a loose, passive fish with a half stack with 66 unless you have a read he's folding to a lot of c-bets.

      His 1/4 pot donk looks really weak so bluff raising is fine but a bit marginal against a fish who calls a lot post-flop.

      Hello Oly0909,

      Preflop: I guess I'd just Call it vs such a half-stack guy. We still can extract value from him postflop when we even do hit.

      As played
      Postflop: Very close, I guess I even sometimes like folding more since he is a half-stack and as well a very loose player. Although often times such a small donk is weak and you can consider raising.

      Best regards.
