      Hero (BTN): $2.16 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 17, 3B: 5, AF: 2,3, Hands: 2940
      SB: $1.05 - VPIP: 39, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 0,5, Hands: 61
      BB: $2.78 - VPIP: 18, PFR: 15, 3B: 0, AF: 0,2, Hands: 34
      UTG: $3.93 - VPIP: 44, PFR: 25, 3B: 0, AF: 6,6, Hands: 85
      From 85 hands I saw him donking with A-high and bottom pair too. He also plays every Ax hand. He donked 6 out of 9 times, and folded 1 out of 2 to a db/raise.

      CO: $2.47 - VPIP: 28, PFR: 21, 3B: 10, AF: 3,2, Hands: 89

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is BTN with 6 :heart: 6 :spade:
      UTG raises to $0.04, 1 fold, Hero raises to $0.12, 2 folds, UTG calls $0.08

      Flop: ($0.27) 8 :heart: 3 :heart: 8 :spade: (2 players)
      UTG bets $0.12, Hero calls $0.12 I want him to bet again with BP or A-high. I can comfortably fold to an A, and get value out of him at the same time.

      Turn: ($0.51) 4 :spade: (2 players)
      UTG bets $0.06, Hero? Must raise, he gets too good odds to catch an A.

      Hello Imimba1,

      Preflop: What's the reason for raising here?

      As played
      Postflop: Then instead raise the flop if you raised preflop for value than the turn where you most likely don't get called much.

      Best Regards.

      Preflop: He's a loose maniac, I'm ahead of his range, and have position. From 85 hands I saw him donking with A-high and bottom pair too. He also plays every Ax hand. He donked 6 out of 9 times, and folded 1 out of 2 to a db/raise.

      Postflop: Didn't want to make him fold an A on the flop. On the turn he gives too good odds himself by the small bet, that's why I raise.

      But every hand whichever calls you preflop will have decent fold equity vs you + you are building up a huge pot with your raise while it might be difficult to play. Why not raise those PPs which also are stronger postflop and not that often face overcards on board which with 66 will happen.

      Rather just raise the flop and protect there if you made such assumptions and raised for value preflop. Why would you give him a free card?
