      IPoker, $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 8 Players

      BB: $4.46 (223 bb)
      UTG+2: $6.94 (347 bb)
      MP1: $4.51 (225.5 bb)
      Hero (MP2): $2.08 (104 bb)
      MP3: $4.52 (226 bb)
      CO: $1.42 (71 bb)
      BTN: $0.97 (48.5 bb) 27/17/0/3 (96) v/p/3/af (hands)
      SB: $2.12 (106 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with 6 6
      2 folds, Hero calls $0.02, 2 folds, BTN raises to $0.08, SB folds, BB calls $0.06, Hero calls $0.06
      Limped here because the BB is v aggro, and I've seen him squeeze twice in only a short time, and didn't want to give him the opportunity. In fact, I was pretty sure here I would be playing the BB, not the short stack.

      Flop: ($0.25) J 6 J (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks, BTN bets $0.18, BB folds, Hero calls $0.18
      Is this a place where a donk would be appropriate?
      Would a check/Raise be better than a flat call here?


      Turn: ($0.61) 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.35, BTN folds
      what is proper play here?

      Results:
      $0.61 pot ($0.04 rake)
      Final Board: J 6 J 4
      Hero mucked 6 6 and won $0.57 ($0.31 net)
      BTN mucked and lost (-$0.26 net)

      Hello VorpalF2F,

      Just Check the turn cause he will have tough time to continue. If he has a hand he is willing to pay, if not then at least he could hit on the river. We can still shove the river. :)

      Best Regards.
