      Hi,


      Hard to say without reads, he could have Jx, Ax, a middling pocket pair, some broadway gutshots, air, even 4x who knows.

      Standard line is usually to just repop that donkbet the first time, he might still call you with all worse hands and will usually be more inclined to let you see a cheap showdown after that unless he really has you beat. You also gain information about his style that way, either at showdown or just seeing what he does against your raise, so you can better exploit it next time around.


      Hope it helps.

      What where you thinking when you called the flop? the way you played it seems completely pointless imo.

      After his small donk bet you have 3 options;

      1. Fold straight up and give up the hand, which although being a little weak isnt that bad.

      2. Call with the intention on betting the turn if checked to (float) which was how things would have worked out.

      3. Raise on the flop and being forced to fold to a re-raise.

      I think the best move here is to raise directly on the flop to about $1,10 and folded to raise as he will be clearly beat. I believe there is a strategy article also that recomends this, to raise a small donk bet of 1-4BB if you oponent is fully stacked
