      Pacific Poker - $0.02 NL - Holdem - 7 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      CO: $2.00
      BTN: $0.99
      SB: $0.80
      Hero (BB): $2.03
      UTG: $3.58
      UTG+1: $0.97
      MP: $2.44

      SB posts SB $0.01, Hero posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero has J:diamond: T:diamond:

      UTG calls $0.02, fold, fold, CO raises to $0.08, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.06, fold

      Flop: ($0.19, 2 players) 2:spade: 4:club: 5:club:
      Hero bets $0.09, fold

      Villain: 19/7/0.8/ ats: 20/ 100 hands

      (Iam playing with a much reduced HUD so had no idea of his ats, but its only 100 so doesn't reall say much?)

      The flop totally misses, and he's prob going to check, so i dont want him to get a free chance to hit his A, or whatever so OK to donk as a bluff here?

      What about the bet size, I want to bet small as I have no hand, but if he has say AcTc he's getting good odds to call, right?

      Hello Iolar,

      First of all, yes he is going to get good odds to Call, since you still have a lot of your stack left and the ratio to that he is getting correct implied odds. Although without having the JcTc myself I am not really big fan of donking here, rather just Check/Call such a flop. I guess he could be easily capable of floating with A high here for the GS.

      Best regards.
