      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.106 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with J:heart: , J:club:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.06, SB calls $0.05, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.14) Q:heart: , 6:heart: , 4:spade: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.1, Hero raises to $0.30, SB folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

        A standart raise ? He`s donk bet could tell that he has a pocket pair bigger then 6, or something like A6, A4,55.He has a high AF, that could mean he is betting he`s FD or straight draws. If so, maybe go for a pot size raise (0.44 ?) for value ?

      Final Pot: $0.34

      And if he calls, than just check on the turn ?

      I usually raise those donkbets for semi-bluff if I have some outs for the turn, or a hand with some showdown value like that JJ. a raise/fold, obviously.

      If he called and checked to me, I would bet/fold the turn for free showdown and to extract from middle pocket pairs and draws.

      Hello kasparsss,

      I don't like the raise there, you just isolate against better hands. At the best I would just Call and reevaluate it on the turn. Well, if he calls then what's the purpose of raise if you ain't betting again on turn?

      Best Regards.
