      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 8, A.
      MP3 folds, Hero raises to $0.75, BU folds, SB calls $0.65, BB calls $0.50.

      Flop: ($2.25) A, 3, 4 (3 players)
      SB bets $1.75, BB folds, Hero calls $1.75.

      Turn: ($5.75) 2 (2 players)
      SB bets $4.00, Hero calls $4.00.

      River: ($13.75) 6 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $13.75.

      Villain is a loosing reg.
      27/19, AF 2.2, 3b from sb 12%(17), donk 9%(11), AFq F 43% T 24% R 26%.

      I really don't wanna play for stacks on flop even though his stas show he is pretty aggro on flop. I decided to c/c.

      Do I call a river bet here (on blank rive ofc), if so, does it depend from his bet size?

      I don't have reads he could play AT+ this way, but if he does, what does his sb 3b mean? That he 3b air mostly?

      His donkbet% is really small and he's donks 3way. I wouldnt expect him to have a very weak hand. But I would also call the flop.
      The 2 on the turn is bad, cause some of his 5x hands got there, and he should be worried about the same but he still bets. I would just fold here cause now you only beat a pure bluff here if he does that with pure FD.

      Hello Gregor86,

      Well, what kind of hands do you expect to beat on the turn which 2nd barrels? Do you think he is capable of having a lot of FDs in his range? If you think he could be playing with them this way then sure, we could consider Calling the turn but then again we have to fold it on the river and if he 3barrel with even missed draws it would be pretty much trouble for us. I might even at some point make a crying fold on turn to avoid mistakes on river.

      Best Regards.
