      Hero checks, BTN bets $3.00, Hero calls $3

      River: ($10.17) 7 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $6.00, BTN folds


      I've decided to play the hand passively against him. Is it OK to call once more on the turn?
      On the river he's very passive, and has a very low river cbet percentage, so I've decided to donk against him, because he could checkbehind all weaker hands, but maybe could call a bet with an overpair/Jx/twopair etc. If he raises, I'm folding of course.

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Already on the flop we should ask ourselves if we should even Call vs such a guy. He has a pretty low CB overall which means we can't be really far-far ahead there. Also we are OOP and it will be difficult for us to Call the turn.

      I would even prefer just to Check/Raise the flop than Call it cause we wont most likely able to Call the turn being OOP. Even on such a card cause you ain't really ahead there vs his 2nd barreling range often enough. Nor he wont pay with worse on the river ever.

      But as played not much to comment, he is Checking behind with a lot worse hands there on the river.

      Best Regards.
