      Preflop: Hero is BB with J, A.
      MP3 raises to $0.08, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.06.

      Flop: ($0.17) 4, 7, A (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $0.06, Hero calls $0.06.

      Turn: ($0.29) K (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 checks.

      River: ($0.29) K (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 checks.

      Final Pot: $0.29.


      preflop: MP position player raises, in my BB position, hole cards are AJ (s), is a better call? Or 3bet he is quite good?
      Opponents of the data is 35.7/8.04/112/2.43 (vpip / PFR / HANDS / AF), BB/100 to 77.68

      I understand the opponents of data, he raises the range is relatively narrow

      Plus he is filling in the middle, that he has a card edge, so I did not resist, just call

      I would like to ask is, with opponents of the data, I should 3bet or call it?

      flop: I hit the A, and a good kicker, I chose to check, I would like to ask the teacher: This donk bet better, or check / call relatively good?

      turn: I check, and do not know good or bad bet? I always afraid of my opponent's cards better than

      river: I feel like I should be able to bet what the opponent has a turn on the weakness

      Thank you

      Hello wangwei520,

      I would like to ask is, with opponents of the data, I should 3bet or call it?

      According his PFR his range is pretty narrow, therefore I am not really a big fan of 3betting against him, for the given reason that we ain't going broke against him. Therefore I'd rather play against him postflop or just fold it directly.

      flop: I hit the A, and a good kicker, I chose to check, I would like to ask the teacher: This donk bet better, or check / call relatively good?

      Actually having some kind of drawy board, I'd rather prefer to donk out myself here.

      turn: I check, and do not know good or bad bet? I always afraid of my opponent's cards better than

      As played, yes likely Checking is better, we don't want to face a raise.

      river: I feel like I should be able to bet what the opponent has a turn on the weakness

      Since he did show weakness by Checking on turn, I'd rather make a small value-bet here.

      Best regards.
