      If there's one thing I'm slowly starting to learn playing these microstakes. It's if they raise they pretty much awlays have it. Especially on the river.

      Unless they're one of those crazy 80/40 guys...

      I'm not so sure about donking the flop?

      I would have reraised preflop to 24c.
      On the flop there are quite a few hands which have you beat. I would check the flop.
      River would be bet fold.

      Hello tieppofer,

      Welcome to the English NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Preflop: Could easily raise it even for value here vs CO. But of course it ain't a must.

      As played
      Postflop: Why do you donk? You don't even allow him CB with weaker hands. :) Also you have to fix your sizes, read articles about it.

      Bet/Fold the river is kinda standard, you don't beat much there.

      Best Regards.

      After a few hands I took another look and I didn't understand either why I played like this, it just seemed to make sense during the hand :f_p:

      I'll also work on the sizes a little more, thanks :D
