      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BU:
      $10.00
      SB:
      $10.05
      BB (Hero):
      $23.00
      MP2:
      $7.80
      MP3:
      $9.55
      CO:
      $9.03


      Preflop: Hero is BB with T, A.
      3 folds, BU raises to $0.25, SB folds, Hero calls $0.15.

      Flop: ($0.55) A, A, K (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $0.30, Hero raises to $1.20, BU calls $0.90.

      Turn: ($2.95) Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $1.50, Hero calls $1.50.

      River: ($5.95) 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $7.05, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $5.95.

      How about this one? BU is 9/9 in 100hands, thats why I didnt 3bet PF(should I consider even folding? its still a button raise..)

      Edit:When I think about it now I probably should have donk/folded turn, if he calls bet/fold river?

      Hello matusko,

      Preflop: Fold it preflop or if he steals a lot then 3bet but I wouldn't Call here. Most often just fold against such a tight opponent.

      As played
      Flop: You could also donk out yourself to balance your bluffing lines and also protect from any kind of draw.
      Turn: Check/Call is reasonable since we don't want to get raised and put us into ugly spot. Hope for improvement.
      River: Check/Fold, since he will very often have a stronger hand there because of his bet sizing, I don't really expect from such a nitty such a huge over-bet with a lot weaker hand than at least trips, more often even AK, AQ. Against a smaller bet we could consider Check/Call.

      Best regards.

      I dont think there is any need for balancing on NL10 and I never donk on the flop, so I dont like that too much. I will probably throw it away next time against nits.

      No way to throw it away on flop, he could still have hands like KQ or even draws or smaller PPs which he is going to Call. With donking we get protection from draws, information from his and (for example if he raises us), and also value from weaker hands as Kx type and some smaller PP. But if you just pick your line, you only get his $0.30 and that's all, since he wont be Calling that often your Check/Raise with draws either smaller PPs. Maybe even not with weak Kx type of hands since his a nit. That's why I'd prefer to donk out myself and start building up the pot if he does have a weaker hand.

      I will think about it your probably right :) I never donk on flop, maybe I should add it to my game.

      By throwing away I meant preflop, on flop I cant fold thats clear

      Yep, just fold it pre, depending on the opponents you adjust, against aggressive opponents I would very often pick such line. :)
