      This guy had been lead donking so much and mostly I saw he did it with Bottom pairs and sometimes middle pairs, so I put him on 5x or 3x hand and therefor I considered whether he would ofc fold to a re-raise.

      After his snap call on the flop I thought that a small Bet on the turn was okey. If he called I would check/fold on the River.

      When I look at it, it looks like I overplayed my A High, but I just sensed so much weakness and thought I had enough Fold Equity on him.

      Good or bad thought proccess?

      Hi.

      I think your Ace high has enough showdown value if you think he has a wide donking range which includes overcards and draws and a bunch of other stuff. If you think he only donks pairs, then you should fold cos you are just behind his donking range (he's telling you when he has something so you should just fold).

      On the turn i guess you can try to represent a OESD on the Flop which turned the straight. a half pot bet is fine, don't like to bet under half pot.

      Thanks.
