      Hello,

      I'd make it $0.45-$0.5 preflop.

      I prefer folding against the donk bet, without any information. We just have A high and I don't really like the idea of bluffing on this board.

      As played on the flop, turn doesn't really change much and I'd give up here.

      Best,
      Plamen

      whats the reason for making it 4.5x - 5x?
      pure value??

      anyways, that said, what cards on the turn that changes the board will you carry on with? a flush card? or when the jack pairs?

      Since we are only against a minraise I like making it more in order to build the pot.

      A card that changes the situation is a flush card for example, like you said, also A/K/Q but as I said in the previous post, I don't think bluffing on this board is a good option.
