      Hello JohnDoe1313,

      As I understand you are playing NL4, therefore as well if you playing BSS then you should buy-in for 100BB.

      Preflop: And while playing MSS and not having full stack I'd rather fold.

      As played
      Postflop: I don't even like the donk there on flop that much for the reason that we don't really want to see a raise there and which sometimes would not even give is great odds to Call. And as played you aren't getting that great implied odds there anymore while you don't have a full stack and have to Bet/Fold, likely did a mistake by calling there. Turn is pretty standard as you called on flop.

      Best regards.

      As I understood, big problem is I do not have full stack. I play BSS on shallow tables with 50BB buy in, because unfortunately NL4 is the lowest limit available on Cake and my bankroll does not allow me to play standard tables. So should I avoid playing like this because I will not get paid enough in case I hit a monster until I can move to another limit?

      If you are playing shallow then rather yes, fold it and play rather tighter and stronger hands.
