      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.85 by

      Preflop: Hero is BU with 4:heart: , 4:diamond:
      UTG1 calls $0.02, 5 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, 2 folds, UTG1 calls $0.06.

      Flop: ($0.19) K:diamond: , 6:heart: , 5:heart: (2 players)
      UTG1 bets $0.06, Hero calls $0.06.

      Turn: ($0.31) A:diamond: (2 players)
      UTG1 checks, Hero bets $0.18, UTG1 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.31

      Flop: villain's small donk makes me think he has a weak hand. He knows that if he checks I am always cbetting such a flop, so if he really has a good hand I think he will check/call or check/raise. (Unless he is being super tricky and playing "bet small for raise induce", but I don't think so in 39/0 player.)

      Turn: when he insta-checks I think he has given up after seeing the A, and I can bet and take the pot. I guess he had some kind of middle pp.

      I'm not sure whether this was ok, or whether it would have been better for me to raise/fold the flop. Thanks for any advice.

      Hello member001,

      Preflop: Usually I'd do $0,10, for 1 limper being in the pot as well.
      Flop: While often times such donks are pretty weak then you could as well just raise it up even.

      As played
      Turn: I'd even make the bet bigger like $0,22 or something similar.

      Best regards.
