      BB is a fish, 21/13, WTS=44, AF=1.2 over 40 hands.

      Flop: With that raise I wanted to protect against his XdX hands or AXd hands.
      I have no idea how to play the hand when he donks small into me.

      When he raises me though I guess I'm up against two pair, set or a flopped flush. Wouldn't he want to protect them though? Why donk so small? That's what made me think he rather holds a single diamond.
      Help me out here!

      Hello inlovewithamsterdam,

      Don't like the raise that much on such a board. You are practically turning your hand into bluff. I guess myself I'd rather just take the pot control line and just Call and reevaluate it on further streets.

      But as played nothing much to add, I don't think that we beat anything which takes such a line.

      Best regards.
