      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:

      CO:
      $4.10


      Preflop: Hero is BU with A, J.
      UTG2 posts deadblind, UTG2 checks, MP1 calls $0.02, MP2 calls $0.02, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.14, 4 folds, MP2 calls $0.12.

      Flop: ($0.35) 7, T, J (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero bets $0.22, MP2 calls $0.22.

      Turn: ($0.79) 5 (2 players)
      MP2 bets $0.35, Hero calls $0.35.

      River: ($1.49) Q (2 players)
      MP2 bets $0.75, Hero folds, MP2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.49.


      I saw this play a lot yesterday never had the balls to see what was up, don't know why, but would you say it usually represents? Should I raise turn or just fold? As played I suppose calling river is more correct but i don't even beat a flush draw that was semi-bluffed on turn. This kind of play always confuses me.

      Hello ExMagnusxL,

      Often times such donking is pretty strong unless the opponent is really aggressive. And I guess I'd play the same way, just for the reason that his play doesn't make sense at all.

      Best regards.
