      Hey,

      I think I would just fold the turn, its likely he has some form of KJ, QJ, Q10, Q9, A9 random hand that isn't just ahead of us, but has some form of blockers to our outs. The pot is small, he isn't full stacked, we don't have much implied odds so I would just go ahead and fold right now.

      Usually I raise the donkbet on the flop, I think we have some FE and we can check back turn when called. Is this a valid line Pleno?

      Hey,

      The reason I prefer to call is that he is pretty short stacked and if we raise to say $2 and he re-raises or presses min raise or anything else stupid then its just so ugly. Also when we're drawing to the nuts its nice to have as much implied odds as possible.

      If I had Kx I would raise here. Qx call. Good draws call. Combo draws raise.
