      These min-raises really give me headaches.

      I don't like these hands, and I might consider even folding on turn.

      I don't get the donk on the river, just c/f.


      * some say min-raises sometimes are strong hands because players try to extract any value and afraid of opp's folding to higher raise.

      If you have a good draw and u get the odds to call, so call.

      Hello AtrociousNightmare,

      Why would you donk the river? There ain't many worse hands which pay you there. ;) If I went for way ahead, behind then Check/Fold it rather than donk it.

      Best Regards.
