      Known players:

      0,03/0,05 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.102 by

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 7:spade: , 6:spade:
      MP3 folds, Hero raises to $0,18, 2 folds, BB calls $0,13.

      Flop: ($0,39) J:spade: , 6:club: , 3:diamond: (2 players)
      BB bets $0,05, Hero raises to $0,19, BB calls $0,14.
      on first thought i should have made it $0,24, on second thought maybe not since i don't think he'll call many worse or fold many (if any) better on this super dry board anyway

      Turn: ($0,77) 5:diamond: (2 players)
      BB bets $0,05, Hero raises to $0,10, BB calls $0,05.
      this nonsense line serves two (or is it three) purposes :f_p:
      - pot control and free (ops, cheap) showdown, if he has some kind of monster hand i induce him to minbet again :f_biggrin:
      - it messes up opponents' hud stats :f_biggrin:

      i don't think there's any value here :f_frown: the flop offers only one OESD and random gutshots, of course wouldn't be surprised if he chases them but he's much more likely to have a pair

      River: ($0,97) 9:diamond: (2 players)
      BB bets $0,05, Hero calls $0,05.

      Final Pot: $1,07

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows (7s 6s)
      BB shows a pair of jacks (As Jh)

      BB wins with a pair of jacks (As Jh)

      Hello Tomaloc,

      Of course flop line is fine against his min-donk. :> But the question is if it's really reasonable to raise it on turn, even min-raise. I'd rather take the implied odds and reevaluate it on river. :) We might still get 3bet and which would be horrible for us. :D

      Abuse those opponents when they are giving great odds for a draw or even 2pairs etc type of hands.

      Best regards.
