      Hello,

      I think you missplayed this hand here.

      Preflop I'd make it at least pot size here.

      Not really the greatest boards here, and when he donks it sucks.
      His donk shows weakness and I usually raise these bets but on the other hand board is really wet and I expect to get a call very often here and with our hand I don't really want to make the pot big.
      Calling is another option, but then I really would feel that I have the best hand if I hit 8 or A and reall won't feel comfortable calling with A high on the turn.
      So we are left with a fold here. It really does seem weak, but if we think about it, all the other options aren't really great and we can put ourselves in really tough spots if we pick them up and loose a lot of money (as in this case). So I wouldn't mind to take safe route and just fold.
      If we go for a raise though, we can just make it $0.4-$0.5 since it wouldn't make a difference to the hands he is going to fold.

      As played the flop, I'd just call his turn bet and reevaluate the river.

      On the river I would bluff here since I don't think we have enough FE so I'd just call and expect even to win the hand from times to times.

      Best,
      Plamen
