      If you are going to call small bets dont raise.
      If you raise with trash and he calls, then you are done with the hand.
      You dont want to fatten the pot with trash.
      I prob just fold flop against unknown since you showed strength pf.

      Well, his donkbet on the flop made me think he has nothing or almost nothing and wants to get the pot right away hoping I didn't hit either. Well, on this particular flop it's not the best way of thinking, cause as the pre-flop aggressor I likely had an ace or a king, but that's what I did. I knew I was way behind in most cases when he called my reraise, but could I fold to those small bets?

      I thing you have an easy fold on the flop. I'm not seeing donk betting with hand that you beat.
      As played fold turn.

      Best regards,

      Mostly those minbets mean hes on a draw or wants you to call, since theres not many draws here he prob has a better hand than you (Ax/Kx if hes loose, AK/99 if hes tight)

      hi
      calling is better then raising in this situation. he isnt folding nothing in this situation (not an a ,, nor a k or a draw) so you will have to give up anyway after you raise and he calls
      i would call flop and probably fold turn
