      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A, Q.
      UTG1 calls $0.05, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.22, 5 folds, UTG1 calls $0.17.

      Flop: ($0.51) 4, 7, 2 (2 players)
      UTG1 bets $0.20, Hero calls $0.20.

      Turn: ($0.91) 8 (2 players)
      UTG1 bets $0.25, Hero calls $0.25.

      River: ($1.41) J (2 players)
      UTG1 bets $0.35, Hero folds, UTG1 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.41.

      Opp's stats not available since sample size too small.

      Flop:
      Villain donk bet on the flop, I think villain range is (JJ-77,44,22,AhQh,KhQh,AhJh,KhJh,QhJh,AhTh,KhTh,QhTh,JhTh)

      I called the flop because I have 6 outs for overdraw and additional outs for back door flush + villain have enough $ in his stack for implied odds.

      Turn:
      I think I should actually fold here because I'm way behind his range although he bet very small here. But I think he most likely have a pocket pair since he block bet again on the turn. So I call again here with the given pot odds.

      I would like to hear what's the best play here?
      Raise on the turn as a bluff? / fold on the turn?

      Hello slashng,

      You could consider like raising it on flop while the donk is pretty weak but the problem is that a lot of hands are going to continue. Therefore I might even at some spots fold right on flop depending on the opponent or either Raise it up than Call.

      But as played rather fold the turn.

      Best regards.
