      29/14 fish 20 hands 0 donks

      HERO (UTG) ($67.88) 136bb
      UTG+1 ($50) 100bb
      CO ($50) 100bb
      BTN ($47.61) 95bb
      SB ($69.02) 138bb
      BB ($50.50) 101bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.75, 6 players) HERO is UTG K:spade: 10:spade:
      HERO raises to $1.50, 2 folds, BTN calls $1.50, SB calls $1.25, 1 fold

      Flop: Q:heart: 6:spade: 3:spade: ($5, 3 players)
      SB bets $2, HERO raises to $6, BTN folds, SB calls $4

      Turn: 5:diamond: ($17, 2 players)
      SB checks, HERO checks

      River: 9:diamond: ($17, 2 players)
      SB checks, HERO ($60.38)?

      This is spot where I'm kind a often lost. Raising FD with one oc (or without any) and fish calls. Turn is blank and fish never fold on blank. Should we raise bet bet mostly?

      Here I'm thinking about overbetting to fold some weak Q or worse.

      I think your play is fine, on the flop we use our equity and fold equity with the raise, plus get a free card on the turn as a bonus.
      I wouldnt start expensive bluffs against an unknown fish.

      Hello flekozub,

      Nah, I like your play and I would have definitely raised the flop for fold equity while those donks are usually weak. As we get called I would just leave the pot alone, we wont have much fold equity vs his made hands.

      Best Regards.
