      Preflop: Hero is BU with A, K.
      2 folds, MP1 raises to $0.30, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.80, 2 folds, MP1 calls $0.50.

      Flop: ($1.75) 2, 7, 4 (2 players)
      MP1 bets $0.70, Hero calls $0.70.

      Turn: ($3.15) 5 (2 players)
      MP1 bets $3.30(All-In), Hero folds, MP1 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $3.15.

      I was caught offguard. Should I fold here on the flop? Should I raise?

      Hello Dawidas888,

      Against his stack I would likely even consider folding the flop. I don't think that he would donk there anyways with a lot worse hands. Likely some PP which tries to protect from overcards.

      Best regards.
