      Wasn't sure what to make of the min-raise pre-flop.

      Seemed pretty strong to me given that I had just isolated in front. On flop despite hitting top pair I was unsure, decided to play bet/fold as overpairs could certainly be in his range.

      Considered check/fold, but it felt too weak after hitting.

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      MP3:
      $1.52
      Hero:
      $2
      BU:
      $1.68

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A:heart: , T:club:
      4 folds, MP3 calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.09, BU raises to $0.16, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.07.

      Flop: ($0.37) T:spade: , 4:club: , 2:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.2, BU raises to $0.40, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.77

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Do you think it's a great idea to donk the flop against rather aggressive opponent? I'd really rather Check it and reevaluate it on further streets. The problem is that he might even min-raise you with draws. :) Or even weaker Tx while he seems to be aggressive. That's why I don't like donking that much.

      Against some passive opponent who doesn't Cbet at all you might even consider such a line.

      Best regards.

      What gives you the idea he is aggressive, just the pre-flop action?

      I have no reads on his post flop play, 11 hands and 0 AF!

      I see just - AF. :D But most likely according the stats but I wouldn't assume that much on that. Therefore I'd rather as well Check/Call it here than donk myself. :)
