      178 hands/49/5/2,7 af/ 61 fold to cbet/ 67 fold to cbet turn/4,9 3bet

      I think of him as being a calling station.

      I hit fairly good flop so I want to protect my hand against overcards and FD. When he calls I don't put him on T, more some PP or FD, since he only called preflop I'm not giving him credit for top 5% (88+, AJs+, KQs, AKo). He has some K high backdoor FD with some pair or some middle FD.

      On turn I bet quite small because I want to build the pot but at the same time my hand is not so good so this is some kind of pot control (checking the river in mind).

      River changed a lot in my mind -> J8, 2 pair combo, better T... I would fold if he bet bigger, when he donks this small calling is a must, right? Is calling 1/2 pot good or they don't fire with worse hands?

      Hello yaxkukmian,

      Turn: Well, against that kind of player I would definitely bet it bigger on turn ~$2,5 at least for protection and value from worse pairs.

      As played
      River: For the given odds of course would be kinda hard to fold. :D Most likely I wouldn't even. :)

      Best Regards.

      Well, to avoid that I would consider betting it bigger on turn and most likely if I would have done then we might even had to fold our hand. :( Would be much hard to Call while some 2pairs are already possible and stuff and maybe even better Tx.
