      Both opponents are loose-passive fish. CO 53/4 af=1.0; UTG 45/14 af=1.1.

      Lost my concentration in the hand and thought I had initiative (hence the flop donkbet)

      But perhaps donking out is optimal here?
      What's the best line?

      Comments on the sizing?

      Thanks
      Matt

      How many hands have you got persuming villains are fish?

      They are betting utg, and your calling with AJs. Thats way of the startinghand chart. But if you got some really good read to not respect an utg raise then its ok, although I might even 3-bet.

      On the flop you got toppair + J kicker and a flushdraw. I'd valuebet .30ct. Just too keep my bettings in line.. (I see you change your betting sizes a lot. )

      The second barrel on the turn is ok, I would have bet .85 though.

      After villains raise, and if you are really!! sure they are blue fishes i'd go broke. Else i'd might decide to fold, and put villain on a AQ+ , or a set.

      Hello inlovewithamsterdam,

      Don't like the lead-out here cause you wont be able to Call it very easily if you get raised and vs raising range you ain't doing very good either. Also deep with CO.

      Therefore I'd rather just keep their ranges wide. If you do Bet then not much to comment, hard to fold of course for the given odds while you also kinda Bet for value, didn't ya with the donking?

      Best Regards.
