      Calling is high in variance. He probably does it with JJ, 99, 88, AQ, KQ and some K high flushdraws, according to the equilator the call is closer ...

      Hey M1rCea,

      Preflop I would rather raise a bit smaller because you have position and it's blind battle. I'd raise 0.50$ or at most 0.60$.

      On the flop you only have a second pair so I would just fold the hand versus donkshove without any reads on villain what he does it with. The problem here is the overcard because every time he holds a Q you are pretty much drawing dead.

      Best regards,
