      I think you are missing a lot of value calling turn. Just raise to get value from draws and pair+draw type hands. If he calls turn and mini donk river I'd raise again to get value from pair, two pair there are a lot of combos to get value from on this board and he looks fishy and definitely he's paying you out even in that 4 to a str8 board.

      Hi Mih,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Flop cbet is fine and we can even bet larger for value.

      On the turn I would raise for thin value/protection. No reason to just call his min donk and potentially lose value. His hand looks like a Jx/8x/Tx with a draw.

      As played the river should be a small raise for value as he will have plenty of 2p hands to call with.
