      Hello,

      Preflop raising is good.

      I would bet bigger on the flop - $0.15-$0.16.

      As played, I would raise around $0.85-$0.9 on the turn.

      Best,

      What hand does he donk turn with and not fold to a raise that we beat? If he had 2 pairs on flop he'd raise flop itself since its draw heavy. If he has FD he'd raise flop and get it in if he's comfortable getting it in now or calling a turn raise?

      Why not just call turn, keep his weaker hands in that might fold to a raise? If he has a straight and we hit full house on river we can still get value from him.

      We can't really put him on a straight only.

      I can't really give him an exact range since on this board there aren't too much hands that would make sense - probably some top pair hands (such as KQ/KJ), some FDs and maybe even hands like KT/K9.
