I like the way you played this hand.

You could fold, call or raise preflop, I don't think any of these plays can be considered as a mistake.

As for postflop play, I agree with all your actions and sizing. It can be annoying to play against these guys who donkbet, but when they bet like this, you know that they have a weak holding, often a draw. So when the nasty river comes, I think you do right just to fold. Keeping your chips is critical in the early stages of an SNG (which I assume this is?)

I agree. I need to raise or fold pre, especially early in these. The play in them is very soft, so I don't want to be leaking off chips early. I'm saving them to make an aggressive play at a pot, not to be passive. Passive play in these will cost me a ton of chips.
