      Preflop: stealing with the dead money in the pot.

      Flop: I could raise/fold or I could call here. I'm getting 2.5 : 1 odds to call so I have enough (I need 2 : 1 on the flop with a FD). So I opt to call.
      In retrospect, raising to $0.40 may be a better option as I have FE vs PP, 8x and 7x. If I have more than 50% FE the raise is profitable with any 2. Also if I'm called it's likely that I will get a free turn which will be cheaper than calling flop and turn.
      If I'm 3bet, depending on the size I can either call (if I get more than 4 : 1 pot odds for a FD) or fold.
      Turn: I have 2.4 : 1 pot odds and I need 4 : 1 meaning that I need extra $0.64 on the river. Considering his bet sizing and the fact that he donked into me I think I will have no problems getting that much on the river.
      River: missed my draw. Not planning to bluff in NL2.

      Hi Dawidas,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Given his bet size and board texture I think that we are better off just calling in position there and not risk being blown out of the pot.

      And we have no reason to bet the river as nothing better is folding and worse isn't calling.
