      Hey allen,

      With such good odds and on a board that you can't expect much FE I prefer to call the flop donkbet.

      If you decided to play the hand aggresively then you should go all-in directly on the flop. The pot is 0.85$ and you have 1.66$ left, so no raise other than a shove makes sense. If you raise to 0.40$ then you don't get the fold equity which is the whole point of a raise in this spot.

      As played, call the river minbet. If you shove no better hand is folding and no worse is calling.

      Best regards,
      burek2000
