      Hello Alexd10,

      Preflop: If the opponent is pretty loose then I am not really big fan of raising with such a hand, rather just Check behind.

      As played
      Postflop: Those kind of min-donks could mean different things. Some opponents do really like to donk this way to protect from their flushdraw, by that I mean like they are trying to take the showdown as cheap as possible. Some like even to donk this way with some weak pairs. But usually when I was PFA then I do as well raise at some spots but usually against looser and more drawy boards I'd rather just skip it. That's also the reason why I don't like the raise preflop with such a hand. It doesn't hit much.

      Best regards.
