      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has Q:diamond: K:diamond:

      fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to 3 BB, fold, Hero calls 2 BB

      Flop: ($0.65, 2 players) Q:spade: 4:club: T:spade:
      Hero bets 4 BB, BTN calls 4 BB

      Turn: ($1.45, 2 players) K:club:
      Hero checks, BTN bets 8 BB, Hero raises to 28.3 BB, BTN calls 20.3 BB

      River: ($7.11, 2 players) 8:spade:
      Hero checks, BTN bets 92.4 BB and is all-in, fold

      BTN wins 67.6 BB

      I raise large on turn because I dont see what he has other than draw, I think he would raise sets. On river, I think I never win if I call?

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: Any reason why we are donking into him here? I prefer to ck and let him bluff a wide part of his range.

      As played I like our turn ck/raise for pure value and the river is one of the worst cards in the deck for us (that and Js). I don't think we beat anything there so ck/folding is fine (and crying a bit inside).

      The reason for donking is that I play 3 tables, and sometimes the actions is on one, but then I see action on second, and time running out, dont have time to see who has initative so I bet.
      I almost always check without initative as you said to let him bluff.
