      That's a tough spot.

      His betsizing doesn't make sense, if he had something here (pair on the flop, small pp) he should have protected more. A 1/2bet pot doesn't make sense at all. But here it's an obvious fish, so he doesn't understand that I assume. The fold might be the best solution (cause you could wait for a better spot), but I would push here and put a note on him (fold after donkbetting or donkbet/call low flop with). The call is useless if you don't put a note on him. You're paying for a read here more than for direct value.

      ...well explained. :f_thumbsup:

      So, considering you are paying more for the read than for value, I would prefer to fold, because in my opinion read on NL50 with huge pool of players isn't worth so much.
