      Hello Sikac,

      Seems to be fine but do you also have a reason for donking the turn? :) Also I'd still donk a bit bigger ~$0,55.

      What did you plan for the river?

      Best Regards.

      Because his cbet is so weak that most of the time I think it represents a draw or 2nd pair. So I thought there was some value. On the river depends on the betsizing but a small bet I would call.

      Yep, your thought is correct on the flop but keep in mind that we need still to protect bigger and also the river as played why do you want to Check/Call after a draw even completed? Most likely we wont be good and usually we rarely talk about very small bets here in this case.
