      Make it about 55-60 on the flop.
      Call the donk on the turn.
      You are most often behind on the river so I prefer folding.

      Only thing I 'disagree' with is the turn call, flop and river advice sounds fine.

      I think there is a lot of value in raising against all sorts of worse Ax/9x/pair+gutshot/whatever hands from that sort of player and I expect him to call to see a river with those hands for the most part, I'd probably go a bit bigger to the likes of $1.80 and fold to a jam. If you think he could shove those hands over a turn raise, which is possible, just call it off.


      Hope it helps.
