      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:heart: , 9:heart:
      MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0.05, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.25, BB folds, MP3 calls $0.20.

      Final Pot: $1.75

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP3 shows (3h 3c)
      Hero shows two-pair, queens and fives (Ah 9h)

      Hero wins with two-pair, queens and fives (Ah 9h)

      As you can tell by the stats, opponent was a complete donk.

      Flop: He was calling so often, that I had pretty much started checking the flop if I didn't hit. Since I didn't want to inflate the pot, especially oop.

      Turn: Wasn't sure whether to bet here. I felt I was most likely ahead. I decided to c/c as I felt he was pretty spewy and would nearly always bet just because I had checked twice.

      Play and reasoning ok?

      Hello Jeffers16,

      Yep, I do like way you played your hand. Nice hand! And as well the reasons are fine.

      Only reason why I would choose CBet there is that we still beat with the A high a lot of hands and if we checking then he may just take down the pot with betting himself.

      Best regards.
