      Fold or 3-bet pf.

      If you'r going to c-bet, make it 3$ to at least have some fold equity.
      turn I just give it up.
      River, check/fold again! And do you really think he potbetbluff that often? Without a read I would never shove there!

      I would either check-raise or check-fold the flop. As played, min 3bet turn would be good imo, since he can definitely bluff there afrer your min donkbet and he's very aggro and your line would look really strong

      Imo you can´t play A2s ps against BU, since you´re oop.
      I´d c/r that flop or c/f.
      Don´t like b/c, since you´re probably behind here.
      AGainst potsize bet you don´t have fold equity and you can´t really shove here for value, just fold.

      Cards didnt really matter to me, as I wanted to outplay him postflop anyway.

      Called preflop with intention to float and pick up pot at the turn. But when flop came that dry I thought: lets donkbet, as all non pairs have to fold.

      Him only calling flop + minraising turn doesn't look to strong to me, would say 88-JJ range, maybe AK/AQ of hearts.

      He knows that his potbet on river looks strong, but when I shove there he should know his 88/TT/JJ is beaten by a 7 or a FH.

      Does this make any sense?

      Btw he folded ;)

      Floating the turn OOP, do you really like it? If you donkbet turn, then do it for normal amount! If you get raised and believe you can make him lay down some hands, do min3bet!

      Your line is good when you hold the nuts, onking that flop with 7, 44 would be very good since he's aggro and you expect him to raise this flop often. Then donking turn smallish is very good with nuts also vs this opponent, but he wouldn't understand this as a valuebets(so you can extract value by doing this, but not bluff). He doesn't play on that level of thinking imo.
