      SB: $2.87 (143.5 bb)
      Hero (BB): $2 (100 bb)
      UTG: $2 (100 bb)
      MP: $3.07 (153.5 bb) VPIP: 41, PFR: 15, 3B: 25, Hands: 39
      CO: $0.80 (40 bb)
      BTN: $2.24 (112 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K J
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.04, CO folds, BTN calls $0.04, SB folds, Hero calls $0.02

      Flop: ($0.13) 3 6 J (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.08, MP raises to $0.20, BTN folds, Hero raises to $0.38, MP raises to $3.03, Hero calls $1.58 and is all-in

      For some reason I decide to donk, looking back now I would have checked. So the MP decides to raise me, which is not a surprise because he was playing aggressive all the time. I raised him because I have a hand and thinking well he could fold and I don't want him to draw out, but I only minraised, I should have reraised to 60c. At the end did I make a good call?

      Turn: ($4.05) 7 (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($4.05) K (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Results: $4.05 pot ($0.20 rake)
      Final Board: 3 6 J 7 K
      Hero showed K J and won $3.85 ($1.85 net)
      MP showed A 9 and lost (-$2 net)
      BTN mucked and lost (-$0.04 net)

      Hello Krishjanis,

      Not really a huge fan if you even Call such hands preflop. You kind of overplaying them, you only know the guy for 39 hands. How do you know that he is always raising with pure crap? He could easily even be ahead and far-far ahead. I wouldn't really overplay my TP like this. This was at the best for us to see such a draw from his side. At the best I'd Call vs his min-raise and reevaluate it on turn or if I really had reads thene make a normal 3bet.

      Also the Bet size and raise size ain't good either, you definitely have to read about bet/raise sizes.

      Best Regards.
