      $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 7 Players

      BTN: $4.22 (42.2 bb)
      SB: $12.69 (126.9 bb)
      BB: $5.24 (52.4 bb) 40/7/2.3/0.0/30
      MP1: $10 (100 bb)
      MP2: $9.96 (99.6 bb)
      MP3: $11.01 (110.1 bb)
      Hero (CO): $11.30 (113 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K Q
      MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.10, MP3 folds, Hero calls $0.10, 2 folds, BB checks

      Flop: ($0.35) Q K 6 (3 players)
      BB checks, MP2 checks, Hero bets $0.30, BB calls $0.30, MP2 folds

      Turn: ($0.95) 8 (2 players)
      BB bets $0.30, Hero raises to $0.90, BB calls $0.60

      I think I should have raised $1.2 here or pehaps even shoved it here. What do you think?

      River: ($2.75) 9 (2 players)
      BB bets $2.63, Hero calls $2.63

      Should I make this call against an opponent this loose?

      Results: $8.01 pot ($0.36 rake)
      Final Board: Q K 6 8 9
      BB showed J T and won $7.65 ($3.72 net)
      Hero mucked K Q and lost (-$3.93 net)

      Hello maheepsangari,

      Preflop: Don't limp with those hands, rather raise them up. They ain't good in multiway pots.

      As played
      Postflop: You definitely should have raised pot size on the turn and even fold on the river as some draws complete. He will rarely donk like that with a lot weaker hands, fold it.

      Best Regards.
