      SB checks, HERO?

      Villain: 20/5, donk: 13%, AF: 1.6, 243h


      He`s probably donking with Jx and draws. He`s almost never donk-folding in such a spot, so I could have raised bigger, like 0.5

      Still going for value/protection. What if he min x/r? B/F?

      Bet/fold 1/3 pot? He`s still probably calling with 1 pair hands.

      Hey dienaszaglis,

      Preflop is fine.

      On the flop I don't think he's necessarily /never/ folding, it depends on his donk-bet stat to an extent. I still think best option is just to raise for value though, there are plenty or worse hands he can call with.

      Turn is not a great card but continuing to bet for value is the correct option. I guess you have to fold vs a c/r.

      I agree with your thoughts on river, you can probably get called by one-pair hands with a small bet. If villain had a straight/set/2pair he could easily have c/r the turn.
