      Hi Imimba,

      Preflop: looks good

      Flop: I don't like calling these small donks when the board has the potential for many draws so we can easily raise flop for value. If we get raraised we can still fold the hand because we can expect fishy players like him to call draws/weak pairs and raise the stronger part of his range (it's true that he can donk/3-bet draws but by default I wouldn't assume that).
