      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.50 BB (9 handed) - Hold'em Manager Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      saw flop

      CO ($50)
      Gerv (Button) ($50)
      SB ($75.70)


      BB ($50)
      UTG ($10.25)
      UTG+1 ($18)
      MP1 ($17.15)
      MP2 ($26.80)
      MP3 ($51.20)

      Preflop: Gerv is Button with K, 7
      6 folds, Gerv bets $1.50, SB calls $1.25, 1 fold

      Flop: ($3.50) 2, 10, Q (2 players)
      SB bets $1.50, Gerv folds

      I folded this since I have no plan at all on the Turn & river when I will call his donkbet. Moreover I do not even know whether to raise and seize iniative and expect him to fold more often

      Or that I call and evaluate?

      Especially when I have a hand that completely misses the Flop, it is hard for me to decipher what the optimal line is

      I´d just give up, you likely have to 3-barrel there to fold his one pair hand and since you have low equity I´d fold to donk bet.

      So to summarize possible things;

      TPTK and better:
      * You can either raise directly and take the lead
      * Or Calldown?

      TPGK:
      * Calldown
      * Fold when board gets uglier + bets gets higher?

      Draw:
      * Call when Odds/Outs allows you to
      * Semibluff raise?

      Trash:
      * Fold

      Is this somewhere right? personally I play draws passively by calling , I call down the TPGK hands and raise accordingly with TPTK++

      I´d raise on that board any Qx+ and any draw
      he would sometimes fold to yo raise, but often just calls with draw or worse hands
      haven´t really people doing too many times donking 1/2 pot and then 3-betting over your raise.
      if you raise and get called you have a lot of times option to bet turn again or go for pot control, which imo is better than just calling him down.
