      Hero (CO): $20.97
      BTN: $9.85
      SB: $13.04
      BB: $18.01 21/16/6.5 on 71h sample
      UTG: $11.06

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is CO with T :diamond: A :diamond:
      1 fold, Hero raises to $0.30, 2 folds, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.65) Q :club: Q :diamond: 8 :diamond: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.48, Hero calls $0.48

      Turn: ($1.61) 6 :heart: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.80, Hero calls $0.80

      River: ($3.21) 3 :diamond: (2 players)
      BB bets $1.60, Hero raises to $6, BB calls $4.40

      What if we play our draw against him more aggressively, say raising the flop or turn? Considering his AF it's a good idea IMO. I think that way we could get some 9 and underpairs to fold and also get some value, if he's fishy and slowplays his Q and we hit our flush...

      Hello Pichux,

      Flop: Depends how often does he donk-bet, also what's his WTS, according to those stats I decide either to raise or not, for example he goes a lot to showdown then he is very likely going to Call us here anyways with some kind of PPs. As played I don't mind, sometimes we could take the pot down with just betting on turn ourself.
      Turn: Since he is 2nd barreling into us then I find raising here a bit too overplayed and find Calling in this situation better.
      River: Raise for value and hope him to Call.

      Best regards.
