      Hello matovx,

      Preflop: Our hand is pretty strong, I'd just isolate him here.

      As played
      Flop: If you want to donk then do it ~$0,16 or something similar.
      Turn: And on turn I'd rather just give it up unless I know the opponent better. And as well if you want to bet then do it a bit bigger ~$0,30. Weak hand doesn't mean that you have to bet as well weak and show that. :)

      As played if turn was bet
      River: I guess I am just giving it up here unless I know the opponent better if we expect him to bluff there with some missed draws or anything like that. But if he is rather aggressive then it could be considerable.

      Best regards.
