      Hero shows J:diamond: 8:spade: (Two Pair, Jacks and Eights) (Pre 27%, Flop 20%, Turn 93%)

      Hero wins 0 BB
      CO wins 151.55 BB

      0 hands on him, unknown.

      Is it ok to donk flop, because fish usually play totally passive?
      Call his min raise?
      Is it ok raise and shove river? I expect him to overplay his QQ+, or any Jx, so I shove for max value. He was lucky this time on river though :)

      Preflop: Don't like iso-raising without any reads, I think J8o is a little too weak so good check here.

      Flop: Flop sucks when we get min-raised but I'm probably not folding, Vs a larger raise I would fold immediately. I think this is definitely a donkbet on the Flop for value.

      Turn: I agree with check/raising the Turn, but you should have made it much larger. If you make it 22bb, pot will have 54.5BB on the River and you can jam with 52.5BB left.
