      -----

      Preflop: OR 77.

      Flop: since he donk bets into me I decided to just call. I should have raised it to $0.30 or something like that.
      There is no need to balance/slowplay or whatever crap I was thinking.
      Turn: again, should have raised it ($0.75) to protect from FD and OESD.
      River: as played, I'm not sure if raising is a good option here. I though I could get thin value from Qx, KK, AA who can't fold.
      There's not many 89, 4x in his range (if any). All in all, I think this may have been a good raise for thin value from weaker sets/2pairs/OP.

      I'd raise his donk on flop, guess he is calling with Qx here.

      If we knew more about the player, then the best line would be easier to decide. If he barrels a lot, then I'd call it till the river.

      Hi Dawidas,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I think that a small raise is in order so we can build the pot and play for stacks.

      Waiting till the river (and till the one draw got there) will result in us losing some value.

      I would raise the flop to .30 or so.

      PS: don't forget the advise judge button :)

      Best regards,

      Bogdan
