      posting two hands here, because they fit same topic.

      Hand #1

      Grabbed by Holdem Manager

      Hero ($2)
      BB ($1.65)

      UTG+1 ($0.67)
      UTG+2 ($3.85)
      CO ($2.99)
      BTN ($2.92)

      Dealt to Hero 9:club: 9:diamond:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to $0.06, Hero calls $0.05, BB calls $0.04

      FLOP ($0.18) 6:spade: 3:diamond: 2:club:

      Hero bets $0.14, BB folds, BTN folds

      BTN 22/6 32 hands
      BB 82/0 55 hands

      Hand #2

      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.02(BB) Replayer
      SB ($2.71)
      Hero ($2)
      UTG ($1)
      UTG+1 ($2)
      UTG+2 ($3.50)
      MP1 ($2.08)
      CO ($1.97)
      BTN ($3.42)

      Dealt to Hero 8:spade: 8:heart:

      fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.04, UTG+2 calls $0.04, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.02

      FLOP ($0.13) 4:club: 7:club: 5:spade:

      Hero bets $0.10, UTG+1 folds, UTG+2 folds

      UTG+1 23/14 136 hands
      UTG+2 6/3 121 hands, aggressive post-flop

      Donk/fold to a raise or c/r their Cbet? Check/call is out of question - worst move?
      What about making smaller donk bet to induce a raise? Though wouldn't know how strong my hand is and would put myself on a hard decision.

      Hand #1 82/0 opponent calls. Turn comes any face card. Should I continue to bet? Or it would be check/fold, maybe check/call?

      Hello koosMaras,

      I like the donking there for the reason that often times our hand is ahead there of their raising range, Check/Raise just doesn't make sense, we are just isolating against better hands. Otherwise on 1st hand if there was a face card, I'd still keep barreling for the reason that we want to get free showdown.

      Best regards.
