      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      SB:
      $0.85
      BB:
      $2.85
      MP1:
      $1.87
      MP2 (Hero):

      BU:

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A, J.
      MP1 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, 4 folds, BB calls $0.06.

      Flop: ($0.17) J, 3, 6 (2 players)
      BB bets $0.06, Hero raises to $0.18, BB calls $0.12.

      Turn: ($0.53) K (2 players)
      BB bets $0.25, Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.53.


      I realized when this hand came up that I have no idea how to play when someone donks so small like this. I decided just to ignore it this time and cbet as normal, but how should I play this one? Do I raise big here in case he's playing for a cheap flushdraw, or do I just call and play way ahead/way behind?

      Hello numbnutter,

      Flop raising is of course fine even while he makes such a small donk-bet. But as we continue most likely I'd also rather prefer folding while we even don't know the opponent. Looks like he is trapping and trying to induce raise again.

      Best Regards.
