      Standard steal attempt, called by an unknown on his 2nd hand at table (he turned out to be an 80/2 donk).

      I now realise that a flop cbet should be $0.10, but then he donks a small bet on the turn giving me nice odds to draw to a straight. My plan was NOT to go crazy OTR though if we get the straight, given that it's not the nuts.

      I didn't think of it at the time in gamespeed, but I do wonder if his turn bet is a block bet for his flush draw, knowing that I might double barrel a larger amount than his bet? His river bet couldn't be anything but a flush? Or maybe he turned a straight?

      I could be wrong, these are just some random thoughts.

      I think you played this hand good apart from the flop bet sizing, which you already mentioned - it should be $0.1.

      On the turn we can never fold here given these odds and when we are IP and raising will be overplaying our hand, so calling is the best option.

      Once he overbets the river it is an easy fold.
