      Hi, :)

      On the Flop, I raise because I think the minbet is weak but unfortunately Villain call.
      On the Turn, Villain minbet again I think he is never folding if I raise.
      So I tried to go to showdown by calling.
      On the River, I think I am behind. So, I fold.
      I think I should give up on Turn.
      how do you play this hand?

      Thanks

      Hey JHTAN,

      Most of the time those mindonks really don't say anything, so I like to make a standard c-bet disregarding those mindonks. But if villain doesn't give up to your flop raise then I just give up the hand. You have 2 overcards and if he called your c-bet he must have something therefore just avoid spewing even 1BB and fold turn.

      P.S.: I would prefer to make a bigger c-bet, specially when there's a mindonk, so you get enough respect with your bet. I'd go for 0.55$ c-bet.

      Best regards,

      Hi burek, :)
      If Hero holding like Q :club: Q :spade:
      Which mean Hero has flush draw.
      How do you play this hand?

      If villain has a nutFD it changes things a bit. This would mean you still have some SD value against villain in case he mindonks air and 9 outs to the best hand, so I would call those mindonks on flop and turn and re-evaluate river. With this particular river card I would lean towards calling the river bet because you get awesome odds and now Ax is less likely and he can make a cheap bluff there a lot with his AF(although this stat is rubbish after 52 hands it shows his tendency to be too loose-aggressive).
