      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with T, A.
      MP1 posts deadblind, UTG2 folds, MP1 checks, 3 folds, BU raises to $0.08, SB folds, Hero calls $0.06, MP1 calls $0.06.

      Flop: ($0.25) A, Q, 2 (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 checks, BU checks.

      Turn: ($0.25) 9 (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 checks, BU bets $0.24, Hero calls $0.24, MP1 calls $0.24.

      River: ($0.97) 7 (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 checks, BU bets $0.93, Hero ???

      I decided to enter the hand with those two Loose and Passive opponents.

      Flop: Should I donk with TPMK here, instead of Check/Call (that the move I intended to take on Flop)

      Turn: The BU made a move, should I just Check/Fold instead of Check/Call (I think I was playing passively in this spot)

      River: Reevaluate the hand and the board again, with aware of big Bet from BU. What should I do when I was too far in this spot?

      Hello anhvusa,

      Well, I am actually not a huge fan of Calling the turn vs pot size bet even. It's rather a strong hand, might even be a trap on flop with the Check behind. :) Another possibility would be to donk ourselves on turn to protect from any kind of draws and maybe get value from worse pairs.

      Check/Fold on river is pretty obvious isn't it? :)

      Best Regards.
