      I played only few hands with UTG and he seemed to be a regular . BB was unknown .

      So preflop I didn't wan't to stack off with my hand against him , cause the regs on these limits seem to be tighter . I don't want to 3b/fold either .

      So on flop I checked to get a bet from him with the whole of his range , but hmm would he bet the whole of his range against 2 opponents ? I fairly said dont know why I dont raise , maybe not to scare his 99-JJ overpairs .

      On the turn I seek value from them with this stab . I am bet/fold here cause I thought that better hands would push .

      So on river I did one more valuebet / fold


      Do I have to donk flop ?
      Do I have to x/raise flop ?
      Do I have to donk turn ?

      Hello hohoho321,

      The thing is, you don't 3bet preflop but you still go for such a value postflop. Then you could easily just 3bet preflop and go for maximum value than pick such a line.

      Overall I don't like either donk the flop or either donk the turn. And of course Check/Raise is way overplayed as well, just isolating against better hands and he might even fold those few hands what we beat like TT/JJ.

      Rather Call down reevaluate further streets.

      Best regards.

      Ok I would have troubles with the reevaluation .

      If the turn is blank and he bets again - I call . Then river is blank he bets again - I call . Is that ok ?

      If he checkbacks turn I bet any river for value from small overpairs ?

      Yeah, you can still Call it.

      Yep. :) But to avoid the Check-back that's usually the reason why I would consider donking at some spot.

      Which spot - K on turn ? Is that because he won't bet with his 99-JJ and I want value ?

      He can easily just Check behind his overcard type of hands from which we likely rather try to get value or maybe even some draws.
