      So, basically I didnt intentionally donk the flop, I got mixed up on tables and thought I was the one who raised pre, and he called..., but other then that, would check-call be proper on the river or check-fold.

      Hello dahobo,

      The problem lays on your bet size on turn even if you made a mistake betting the flop. I'd still Bet the turn ~$0,30 and then likely even consider Check/Folding the river. What hands do you think he is betting there that you beat? I mean a lot of draws even completed. But of course if you expect him even to bet there with weaker hands then for the given odds ain't a huge mistake to Call while you made such a small bet on turn.

      Best regards.
