      They're both pretty unknown but seemed fishy.
      BU 22 hands/45/18/10 3bet
      BB 30 hands/ 59/24

      This flop hits their ranges and I think I can get value from A6, A5, any 4x, FD. So I decide to cbet normal 3/4. BU raises me. I think for a while and I called with intention of betting the turn if no :diamond: comes. If he raises me again I guess we have to fold it then. His raise doesn't mean much to me, because he looked pretty loose to me and also his raise is almost minr.

      I really like the turn. He might hit 2 pair but I was giving him low cards and different draws.

      River is ugly. I can't bet, because b/f is stupid in my opinion - we don't get value from anything. If he shoved I would have folded.

      Hello yaxkukmian,

      Well, I wouldn't still donk that amount on turn, it just induces him to raise sometimes against you if he is aggressive enough. Your bet rather looks like a block-bet/weak hand/draw. There ain't gonna be many 2pair hands in his range which did complete with the Kx, he either had you beat on flop or not.

      Best Regards.
