      This is almost an entire session review. I was card dead 4/3(68) but the table was very loose when I joined and even though the averages went down over time I was hoping to pick up a hand against another player that was 50/15 with 50% WTSD. The rest of the review showed me
      (a)stealing the blinds once and
      (b) incorrectly playing a set too fast from the BB on a dry board in an unraised pot ... I should have let them catch something to try to extract value.

      But .. on to the hand in question:

      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.04(BB) Replayer
      SB ($0.72)
      BB ($1.19)
      Hero ($4)
      UTG+1 ($1.54)
      UTG+2 ($1.56)
      MP1 ($3.96)
      MP2 ($5.29)
      MP3 ($0.93) 12/12(202 hands)
      CO ($4.37) 26/12(70hands)
      BTN ($1.95)

      Dealt to Hero 5:spade: 5:diamond:

      Hero calls $0.04, fold, fold, fold, fold, MP3 raises to $0.22, CO calls $0.22, BTN calls $0.22, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.18
      Once cutoff called I could also call according to call20. Also the number of people in the pot helped my implied odds

      FLOP ($0.94) J:club: 5:club: Q:club:

      Hero checks ???? should I have donkbet here for protection ????, MP3 checks, CO bets $0.47, BTN folds, Hero raises to $1.48 ??? should I be shipping here???, MP3 folds, CO calls $1.01

      TURN ($3.90) J:club: 5:club: Q:club: 7:spade:

      Hero bets $2.30 (AI), CO calls $2.30

      Hello cyclist52,

      Yeah, most likely I'd rather donk bet it here and protect my hand to avoid them Checking behind. We can't be sure that they even betting with any FD/SD. But as played I'd Check/raise bigger but which would be more than 1/2 of my stack and for that reason I guess I'd just Check/Shove. They seem to be loose enough to make the Call here even with FD or of course TP/pair+draw/overpair.

      Best regards.
