      On the flop i decided to raise the small donk for value from TP. After he min reraise? I don`t think my hand is strong enough to reraise, but i don`t really think i can fold for this price?

      On the turn? I doubt he is bluffing and probably he is not valuebetting worse hands. Fold here?

      On the river i finally decided to fold, because i think i`m beat here always?

      Hi,

      It's a super stack off on the flop here imo. You have 2 pair in a HU match, he never puts T3o in your range. As played though, it makes no sense to call to fold on such blanks actually. Q on river is not complete blank but it actually improves him to a second best hand very often like QJ. For <100bb I have no doubt the better play here is to stack off on flop unless you are playing against someone super smart and who forces you to have stronger calling ranges.
