      Villain is playing 54/29/1.6, 83% donk flop, 50% cold call pfr for 31 hands.

      PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (5 handed) - Poker-Stars Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      SB ($25)
      BB ($24.05)
      UTG ($10.75)
      Hero (MP) ($33.30)
      Button ($24.65)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with J, A
      UTG calls $0.25, Hero raises to $1.25, Button calls $1.25, 1 fold, BB calls $1, 1 fold

      Flop: ($4.10) J, 4, 3 (3 players)
      BB bets $2.50, Hero calls $2.50, 1 fold

      Looking at it afterwards a raise is the right play here, maybe to $7. I think raising here would make the rest of the hand easier.

      Turn: ($9.10) 7 (2 players)
      BB bets $4, Hero calls $4

      This bet seems pretty week now, $4 into a $9 pot? this has to be a block bet or the completed str8, 56 fits into his calling range, probably offsuit. what should I do facing this?

      River: ($17.10) 5 (2 players)
      BB bets $10.75, Hero folds

      Can't see calling this makes any sense.

      Total pot: $17.10 | Rake: $0.80

      Against such a donk raising flop is fine. Against a lot of other opponents a call would be fine. As played I call him down. Even though the straight is possible, he is just to much of a fish. Call turn and river.

      Best regards,
