      PF: would you raise it being oop against a donk? I raised only 3BBs so I wouldnt make a big pot.

      Flop: would you cbet against 2 on this board? I did because there was an ace.

      Turn: he could have a draw or a PP so I decided to bet so I could take value off draws and bluff PPs, since donks get scared with an A on the board. If I checked it had to be c/c right?

      If you are raising by default 3BB on MP is fine. If you are doing it because the hand is very very bad.

      Betting flop is not the best in the world, but trying to get out some of the villains is nice. The ace is in you range so betting may win you the pot. If called you have outs, but if you are RR you can call w/ GS.
      You can check/call flop for implied odds (the two of them are full stacks)
      Most of the time you can even see free turn with checking.

      Bet/fold turn and check/fold river is fine.

      Best regards,

      Raise pf is fine, but I would probably c/f flop. You need some kind of hand to beat calling stations.
