      only 67 hands but looked loose and aggressive/ 37/26/13 3bet/ 70 cbet

      He was 3 betting me and both players to my left so I decided to try with 4bet. His 3bet is small but I don't want to raise it too much since my hand is really not so good.

      On flop I don't see any value in betting. Sure there is also FD out there but if he c/shoves we must fold it. I decided to see the turn and then decide.

      I bet smallish on the turn because I see KQ, Kx :club: or even some KJ, JT calling me.

      On river I don't think we should bet since we can't value anything. His check looks weak but any A beats us and now flush got there and KT, QJ, T9 got there.
      My question is can we call 1/3 pot donk on this river? Or is this an auto fold?

      Hello yaxkukmian,

      Well, I doubt that your play is totally off here. If you even expect the guy really to 3bet light then 4betting is an option while you even have a blocker.

      As played seems to be fine as well, although I'd bet the turn bigger ~$3 at least. :)

      Best Regards.
