[NL2-NL10] nl5 rush blind defend

      Really wasn't sure how to play this hand on the flop.

      Wanted to defend my blind there, and with another in the hand gives me better odds.

      I just checked the flop because I think otherwise it looks a bit too obvious I've hit.

      So then I small donked the turn because I was hoping for a raise, rather than just playing c/c.

      Should I maybe have checked the river to induce a bluff? Or value bet thinner?

      No stats on villian

      Hello Jim4rdo,

      Preflop: Totally doable while you even getting pretty good odds and therefore I do as well rather prefer to Call. Unless I know the opponents better.
      Flop: Basically rather donk yourself on flop and try to protect. They are going to pay you anyways if they have a hand and sometimes maybe even with just A high. Plus we need to start build up the pot of course as well. Will be hard to extract value being OOP.

      As played
      Turn: I'd even bet it bigger like $0,85 at least.
      River: While even a draw completed and he will anyways have hard time Calling with a lot worse than Jx, I guess I would do it like $1,50.

      Best regards.
