      Results follow:

      MP3 shows a pair of eights(A K).
      Hero shows two pairs, eights and sixs(6 6).

      Hero wins with two pairs, eights and sixs(6 6).


      Villian check behind on flop, he could have AQ, AJ,AK. Since overpair usually would vbet there. Hence, turn came a J , i decide to bet half pot. At this point im puting him on a draw since aj would prolly flat my half pot bet. River came a blank. And i decide to c/c his bet as it may look like a busted draw to me.

      Hello pokervin123,

      If you want to donk the turn then rather do it like $0,80. And unless I know the opponent I am just folding it right on turn when he decides to do that. Way too big variance and he could easily have the pairs there on even better hands.

      Best regards.
