Hello, i really need help with this hand, greatly appreciate any comments.
There are two hands here, the second was just the previous hand which might give you some idea of the player min betting the flop.

I really didn't know what to do here, I decided to bet and fold if i get raised by the btn and probably call (which would've been bad after taking a lot at the pocket 4 hand, b/c i'm guessing that if he raised me here he would've bet the turn, would've been calling and trying to get to a cheap showdown). Since the SB min bets i'm treating it as a check but sometimes min bet at this stakes when they want to get to the river cheaply but I haven't had much exp at 6max.

this was a tough spot b/c I def didn't want to get raised, but the SB range here it's pretty wide imo (assuming he is a bad player b/c of the min bet and the pocket 4 hand), but I was worried about the btn. but i didn't want to check and have a diamond or a Q hit.

Hi puchium,

I tend to completely ignore small donkbets and treat them as checks. Weaker players do it all the time to try and buy cheap cards or stop you from building a pot.

If I am planning to cbet a given board both for value or as a bluff I will raise to an amount that's around the size I planned the cbet to be. That being said I like your raise and the sizing.

I would probably also fire another barrel on blank turns because of the drawy board texture if I get called by either SB or BTN.
