      BTN: $3.93 (196.5 bb)
      SB: $1.22 (61 bb)
      BB: $2 (100 bb)
      UTG: $2.86 (143 bb)
      Hero (MP): $2.07 (103.5 bb)
      CO: $3.37 (168.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with J K
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.06, 2 folds, SB calls $0.05, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.14) A 4 3 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.04, Hero raises to $0.18, SB calls $0.14

      Turn: ($0.50) 6 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.36, Hero folds

      Flop: should we teach ignorant villains why not to donk before the preflop aggressor on an ace board? ...didn't work here though.

      Turn: my pot odds suck and the 4th spade would be way too obvious, so fold?

      Thank you

      Preflop I would raise KJo here.

      This is the exactly way I deal with such donks.
      I don't like your sizing here though. You can just make it $0.12 and let it go if he calls.

      Considering that our draw is too obvious and we aren't really given good pot odds I don't mind folding here.
