3bet 10
donk flop 75%
28 hands
When he bets the turn that small I figure he does not have anything strong. Can I get thin value by raising the turn, if so, for what size? I know here I went a little over the board.

Hi Pray,

I don't mind raising small or calling turn tbh... given the read and action sequence it's very likely he's got nothing here, calling gives him one more chance to bluff his nothing, or make a pair to pay us with. If we raise, I mean your sizing isn't big or anything, yet what can he call with? If he's got nothing, the answer is nothing. Probably our best chance to eek some more value out of this hand is call, let him donk the river and bet about .75c if he checks to us.
