      $0.05/$0.1 No Limit Holdem
      6 players
      Converted at weaktight.com

      Stacks:
      UTG NumeronX ($5.70)
      UTG+1 azzieelbub ($9.85)
      CO Hero ($10.00)
      BTN texen81 ($8.00)
      SB ChiffaFox ($10.01)
      BB StaTicFielD ($10.00)

      Pre-flop: ($0.15, 6 players) Hero is CO
      2 folds, [color:#272BA6]Hero raises to $0.40[/color], 1 fold, [color:#B93238]ChiffaFox calls $0.35[/color], 1 fold

      Flop: ($0.90, 2 players)
      [color:#272BA6]ChiffaFox bets $0.45[/color], [color:#272BA6]Hero raises to $1.20[/color]...

      I usually don't respect donkbets so what do you think of a raise here against an unknown?

      For me that is a call. You Opponent might have hit an ace on Flop, so you want to see the next card cheaply for a flushdraw. Half potsize is the nicest you can get if he is a normal player. Might of course still be a donkbet - you can float it to the turn though and react there if you feel he is 2ndbarelling or he just checks and has nothing. And of course you can hit your flush.

      I find your reraise there interesting. If he has an ace and you 3bet him he has to fold weak aces, since you're PFA and showing real strength then, if you are not doing it too often. And because of your FD you still got outs if he calls.
      I'm doing this sometimes too, but there must be some outs that you might hit if he calls, imo.
      But in general i must say i respect donkbets, if i didn't hit the flop.
