      I'd just call on turn
      Not sure we were ahead or not after he donked on flop
      But face to a player who just got 2 bucks, I'm not afraid to push

      Raise the flop and get it in to someone who is short stacked.

      Raise will knock out all worse hands. Any hand with lower kicker will fold, better hands will not fold. Villain is a short stack and we have time to put him in all-in on river. He is aggressive and we can let him betting all streets.
      Call down all streets.

      Hi,


      At first sight this player seems both bad and aggressive, so he could have air, 87/flushdraws as well as Ax and the occasional two pairs/sets that crush you. If you think he'd call it off on the flop with a draw just raise and call a shove. If not and/or you believe he mostly has nothing, calling may be worth the risk if you believe he'll shove the turn with whatever crap he has.

      As played on the turn just jam, since you're never folding and his line is consistent with a draw or a weaker made hand you should get the money in. If he suckered you in on the turn with a better hand make a note.


      Hope it helps.
