agree with oldgoat - every OC is bad for you assuming the guy behind you folds. you also block 64 and 74, 2 of the donk bettors more likely bluffs. But he bets turn most of time anyway and you have to fold then. Your open is fine, but spots like this are what makes it often a bad idea to open the lowest pairs early order - so hard to realize your equity.

Being in the sandwiched spot you need to fold here. If you were closing it out I'd prefer a small raise IP.

Yeah fold, I find most donk range I see are weighted towards value. Still doesn't mean 100% but meh. + you got some one behind you, if you are closing the action you can call and pray for a good turn, cause he is for sure leading that turn.

Yeah I think this one is clearer than I thought. I called, BTN called, and I hit a 2 on the turn. But the flop call was obviously a mistake.
