      Hey lollujo,

      usually it's best to just ignore those foolish mindonkbets and just make a standard c-bet which would be a shove in this case, because the pot is already so big. Raising to only 0.70$ though doesn't make much sense, because then your remaining stack is too small and you don't achieve enough fold equity.

      Regards,

      That was initial thinking, but then I think I got scared by the donk bet. Thanks.
