      Dealt to Hero A:heart: A:diamond:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.30, fold, SB calls $0.25, fold

      FLOP ($0.70) 5:club: 2:diamond: 6:heart:

      TURN ($1.90) 5:club: 2:diamond: 6:heart: 4:club:

      RIVER ($4.40) 5:club: 2:diamond: 6:heart: 4:club: 7:spade:

      SB bets $0.20, Hero calls $0.20

      Hero shows A:heart: A:diamond:
      (Pre 81%, Flop 87.6%, Turn 81.8%)

      SB shows 8:diamond: 8:club:
      (Pre 19%, Flop 12.4%, Turn 18.2%)

      SB wins $4.48

      On the flop I want to keep him in so I raise just 3x.

      On T I might r bigger but our hand is not so strong anymore so I go for normal bet size r.

      R is really ugly but he gives us super odds and we have to call. Let's say he bets even $1 can we call it? He seems super bad donking small and only calling us but he still might hit some 2 pair, straights are all over the place...

      Preflop is fine.

      On the flop I prefer making it a little bit bigger - around $0.8.

      On the turn your sizing is good.

      On the river against this donk calling is fine of course.
      If he bets $1 it would be bad but I would likely call here as well but against a bigger one I'd just fold.
