      Known players:

      0,05/0,1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.99 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A:diamond: , 9:diamond:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0,30, 3 folds, BB calls $0,20.

      Flop: ($0,65) J:diamond: , 9:heart: , 9:club: (2 players)
      BB bets $0,3, Hero calls $0,30.

      Turn: ($1,25) 5:club: (2 players)
      BB bets $0,8, Hero raises to $1,90, BB folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2,85

      I don't really remember, but I'm pretty sure villain was a fish

      Ok so he donks both on flop and river. I view this as strength, maybe Jx, maybe a weaker 9. This made me raise turn to get more value, thinking he would call, looks like he has a strong hand.

      Looking back, do you think I would get more value just calling the turn and bet/raising the river?

      Thanks in advance

      Hello M1rCea,

      Nah, I wouldn't really change much in the play. Very likely would have played the same way. Sometimes you could even raise it on flop to make it more bluffy.

      Best regards.
