      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with J, A.
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, 3 folds, BB calls $0.15.

      Flop: ($0.42) 5, 5, 2 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks.

      Turn: ($0.42) 8 (2 players)
      BB bets $0.40, Hero calls $0.40.

      River: ($1.22) 6 (2 players)
      BB bets $0.85, Hero calls $0.85.

      Final Pot: $2.92.


      I check because I can't get better hands to fold and I can't get worse hands to call. Was this bad? As you can see, on later streets I levelled myself into calling with a very weak hand. If I'm checking flop here, do I have to fold to a donk on almost all turn cards? In which case, is it better to cbet just to stop them bluffing on later streets?
