      Attack the flop bet. You can't let him buy a card to draw at a flush for 10 cents here, no way. Kick it to 60 cents. If he comes over the top again, you can consider folding to a probable Kx, possible 77. If he calls, assume flush cards and bet non-heart turns, then check behind on the river.

      Chances are as played that the villain had an unimproved small pair and wanted to see if you would fold an unimproved Ax hand for 10 cents. If the turn had been 2 :club: I think often the villain will be emboldened by your pathetic flop call and make a real turn bet to chase you away.

      Hello flowinel,

      Flop: Against that kind of small donk I'd definitely raise the flop.

      As played
      Turn: Still consider betting it here. We have a very strong hand and of course even a lot of outs which will help us out. Plus we can easily even get value from any kind of draws even and pairs/PPs.

      As played
      River: Could consider betting a bit bigger but it ain't a huge mistake.

      Best regards.
