      Hello acceleration123,

      Depends a lot on the opponent, although often times such a small donk indicates to a very weak hand and raising could be even considerable. Although when he is such a player who like never will fold there then I don't like it. Otherwise for the given odds seems to be fine.

      Best regards.
