      min-bet to the donk refers weakness and you can exploid that by re-raising to 2,5$ on the flop.
      Most of the times SB would fold, if he calls then you can take free turn card.
      As played: turn and river ae fine.

      You could bet the turn a bit more (to 2.8) and the river could be 6$ (70% of the pot.. if we stretch it you could do 5% more, hehe) and he's still calling just the same..

      Those quarters here and there stack up really fast and a good flop and turn bet can bloat the pot enormously.

      If you raised the flop decently, you would be playing for your stack on the river (while I discourage playing for stacks with overpairs, sets are just fine).

      Other than that, nh
