      I attempted to steal, but he called.. On the flop I cbet my OESD and call his raise due to implieds (he gave me 3,25:1 and I need about 2$ more if I hit). On the turn I got my top pair and he checked back. Is it ok to call the flop? What to do on the later streets? Should I check/fold or donk river?

      Hello Alleen86,

      I'd actually rather just lay it down right on flop vs the raise. Not worth to Call while even a FD is possible and we will never know where we stand with our hand on further streets. Very likely our implied odds ain't that good either.

      As played the river is pretty marginal, we only beat bluff there anyways. Might even rather make the fold be safer against rather passive opponent.

      Best regards.
