      SB stats 59/0 AF:1,1 WTSD:39 W$SD:54 donk bet:17(6) after 59 hands.

      I hate those min donks. With two overcards and backdoor FD I decided to call. On the turn it's a clear raise for value, but I don't want to raise big, because he can be donking w 4x, 5x, 6x, pp's and FD's.

      Hello,

      I prefer raising on the flop rather than calling.
      We can get called by worse - FDs/straight draws, we can make hands like JT to fold which is nice and even if we get called we still have some turn cards to bet on as well.

      As played, I'd make it around $1.2 on the turn to maximize our value against draws/6x/weaker Ax.

      Best,
      Plamen
