      Hero (UTG): $11.47 (114.7 bb)
      MP: $9.57 (95.7 bb)
      CO: $10 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with 4 4
      Hero raises to $0.40, MP folds, CO raises to $0.90, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.50

      Flop: ($1.95) 4 6 6 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      Turn: ($1.95) 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      River: ($1.95) 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.60, CO raises to $3.80, Hero raises to $7, CO raises to $9.10 and is all-in, Hero calls $2.10

      Results: $20.15 pot ($1 rake)
      Final Board: 4 6 6 3 9
      Hero showed 4 4 and won $19.15 ($9.15 net)
      CO showed A A and lost (-$10 net)

      Villain played 34/25 with 13.6 3bet over 61 hands.

      Was slowplay a good option here? If he has just overcards I want him to catch a Q,K, or A - and if he has aces, kings or queens and catches a set then gg, he probably would have won anyway.

      Hi, numbnutter.

      On this flop I think both options are fine, donking and checking. Depends on opponent... since donking doesn't make much sense, many players will raise it with a wide range, then we can call and rep a draw and let them bluff out etc.

      On the turn I do prefer to bet and bulid a pot. It's weird he wouldn't cbet any pocket pair it's true, and it's also true that he will have a hard time calling with A high. But he might, and I'd hate to win such a small pot on the river with such a strong hand.

      River is ok, but I''d rather 3bet-ship than make it 7... I'd hate him to just call and leave those $2 behind!
