      Well played. <1/2 potsize donkbets are almost universally weak. I ALWAYS raise them. Well played.

      No statistics on 50NL?

      I'd personally hate it but I fold on this board, its too drawy and he gets 2.5:1 to call u meaning every FD/SD/Combodraw will call

      Maybe I'm folding in this situations too much but I do not want to gamble for stacks in potential ugly spots where the EV is around the =EV area with slight +EV or -EV as maximum ranges

      Yes i play with stats, just didnt import through Elephant! He had a VPIP like 40 i think, and he seemed really really weak.

      Donk-bets like that are "always" bluffs, so try to reraise as often as possible yes, thanks alot!

      agree with noclaninator its a sign of weakness in general unless he has solid stats. If he has solid stats its a sign of strength imho and i fold :)

      u should include the stats if u have them!!!!!
