      I was looking now at the hand, I was wondering why I checked on the turn :f_eek: , should have bet. I got the impression he was slowplaying, so I wanted to see the river.
      (call pf, donk/call flop and check turn - it's a strange line)

      Anyway I should have noticed that the bet on the flop was small.

      im raising a little more on the flop after his small donk, 0.50-0.60, and then just get it in against shorty on the turn as he will have even less left and it is your last chance to get anything from draws... USUALY lol

      He very often isn't slowplaying anything just trying to get his draw in a cheap price with this smallish donk bet.
      Raise it to 0.6$ on the flop and shove turn for value.

      Your logic is flawed. Even if he was slowplaying, you can't fold to the river shove anymore than you could fold if he shoved the turn for that price, and since your hand is a 2-outer the river card will barely ever help you, but might greatly help him and kill your hand in the process. So just shove the turn.

      Hope it helps.
