      I'm a bit struggling with minbet donks. I mostly just lolcall, but from what i've seen it's often some air or low pair. Given that i probably should've folded as he's got a 7 or air.

      Hi Riverdiver,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: We can also raise here for thin value versus gutshots and 5x/7x which can take this line and if he folds that's not terrible either.

      As played I think the turn can be a bet but the river is a fold, we now don't even beat 7x or backdoor flushes.

      Just treat min-bet as check. C-bet as usual, if you were to cbet. These min-bettors are just so exploitable, but so are you if you don't keep on betting. And think of it: if he had Jx, would he donk so small? Probably not, so you can definitely raise for value and bet turn for value.
