      Hello. Now as I think about it probably a raise/fold on the flop would have been a better option? I mean, he will fold all of his weaker hands and will reraise all of his stronger hands so I will know exactly whether Im ahead or not.

      This is a TERRIBLE fold, super -EV.

      If he had bet normal sized on the flop, I would call. Given that his donkbet is so small I would raise. If you get 3bet, it's terrible but call and probably stack off on blank turns while folding on straight/flush ones.

      On the River, so many draws missed so this is an easy calldown, there's a possibility that he's value betting JT/AT like that as well so when you are not sure whether your opponent is bluffing and your hand beats some of his weaker value hands as well there's no way you can possibly fold.

      Yeah I agree that you should call on the river. Lot of missed draws, definitely a call.
