      Hello,

      Preflop is fine.

      I really don't like your postflop play.
      First of all - why do we cbet so small on the flop - just bet around $0.35.
      As played, when he raises, we decide to call and donk the turn? What's the reason for that? I would just check here and see what he does.
      As played, I would shove against his raise.

      On the river check/calling is fine.

      Best,
      Plamen

      So how i should play it after the flop ? Indeed the cbet on the flop is bad, is too small.
      After his raise on the flop, i should call right ?
      Turn and river should be check/call ?

      Thank you !

      I would just bet the flop around 2/3, bet the turn around 2/3 and bet the river around 2/3.

      As played, I thinnk calling the flop raise and calling him down looks like a decent option.
      The other option is to raise and go broke on the flop but being deep against unknown I don't really like this option.
