      Preflop I isolate the limper which I think is pretty standart.

      On the flop he decides to donk smallish which I think is pretty often a bluff or a weak made hand. Although I don't see any value in raising and my plan from here is to call down if he bets that small and the board doesn't get bad.

      The turn is a four and doesn't change anything.

      The river is bad because now his Ax hands beat me but I don't think I can fold with such great pot chances.

      IMHO the donk is 1/5psb and not that small.

      I would raise or fold. Even the turn I would raise or fold.

      I dont like going into c/c mode.

      So did he have ThJh or TsJs?

      You really don't have a clue about his range if he donks like this so I prefer capitalizing on the deadmoney and raise either the Flop or Turn

      I mean you raise for value against KT or 77 for example ;)
