      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BU (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BU with 4, 5.
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, SB calls $0.25, BB calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.9) J, 5, T (3 players)
      SB checks, BB bets $0.90, Hero calls $0.90, SB folds.

      Turn: ($2.7) A (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($2.7) 4 (2 players)
      BB bets $2.00, Hero calls $2.00.

      Final Pot: $6.7.

      Results follow:

      BB shows two pairs, aces and jacks(Jc Ac).
      Hero shows two pairs, fives and fours(4h 5h).

      BB wins with two pairs, aces and jacks(Jc Ac).

      The safe/okay play would be to fold bottom pair there vs pot donk, but I was curious what is he doing that with?

      Just wanted to see what he'd do on the turn ... Don't think he'd donk pot w/ TP, perhaps QT/KT ... I'd expect a c/r from JT and I rule out sets as I have a 5 and it would be the perfect spot to squeeze preflop w/ TT/JJ there.

      If the ace was of any other suit, I'd try to b/f to maybe take it down, but I also smell a c/r there since it's a perfect card to barrel if he has weak holdings, and perfect card to c/r.

      Since it added me a ton of equity I chose to avoid getting c/r and took the free card.

      River sucks balls.

      If you're calling that flop you really need reads that he's donking weak and a plan for the hand.

      Without reads you're just getting into a pot that's too big for you're hand.

      you've pretty much got nothing. just fold

      As played river call is fine IMO

      3-way I think ti is fold on the flop.
      You don´t get good enough cards on the turn to continue with your hand and even if he has there draw I think he is going to barrel a lot of cards and you have to fold your hand
      turn and river is fine
