      Preflop: Hero is BU with K:heart: , T:spade:
      CO folds, Hero raises to $0.06, SB calls $0.05, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.14) 8:heart: , K:diamond: , 3:club: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.12, Hero calls $0.12.

      Turn: ($0.38) J:heart: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.33, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.38

      I thought his donk on the flop was a bit odd. The board wasn't very drawy so I couldn't see why he would be worried about me checking behind and I thought that maybe he had called with a pair and was maybe just trying to steal the pot rather than having to fold if I conti-bet?

      His bet on the turn now looked like maybe he had hit the K or had a set? I felt if he had a K it would have to be KQ or KJ so him hitting two pair could make sense?

      Not too sure what I should have done here tbh.

      Folding is fine. I don't think he needs to have hit the J in that spot, he bet pretty much the same amount relative to the pot than he did on the flop and so far he looks more cally than bluffy from the few hands we have on him. Maybe if he's very bad sometimes he has a worse Kx or a bluff but frankly I doubt it, I have no problem getting away from that before I have to make a call off for a stack with no reads on the river.

      Hope it helps.
