      Hello acceleration123,

      Preflop: Actually with those fishes in the hand who rather not give it up postflop anyways. I am not really big fan of isolating with such a hand, rather just fold it.

      As played
      Postflop: Of course such a small donk usually means weakness and sometimes I even do raise it, although when I face a station anyways then rather just fold it. He is very likely going to continue anyways here.

      Best regards.
