      Non-standard hand, felt I couldn't fold to such small bets on flop & turn.

      On river I bet pot for value...Should I have bet anymore?

      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with A:club: , T:heart:
      4 folds, CO calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.09, 2 folds, CO calls $0.07.

      Flop: ($0.21) K:club: , 8:heart: , 2:club: (2 players)
      CO bets $0.02, Hero calls $0.02.

      Yeah you definitely can't fold to any of these bets, particularly since there is a chance your A high is good :)

      If you wanted you could probably take down the pot on the flop by raising, as these stupid little donk bets are usually complete air. This is useful to do if you're holding a worse hand than this though, something like 67 which has very little potential :)

      Hello Philfox1985,

      One thing what I would consider doing sometimes in those cases is that I would just raise it on flop. While he may easily fold his mid-pair/weaker PPs and of course even if we get called we still have a lot of outs(backdoors).

      But as played seems to be fine, good that people giving at perfect time us the good odds.

      Best regards.
