      Hand recorder for this hand: PokerStrategy.com SideKick 1.0.50820.7

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 5:diamond: , 5:club:
      Hero posts small blind ($0.01), BB posts big blind ($0.02), 6 folds, BU raises to $0.06, Hero calls, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.14 - 7 bb) 9:spade: , 8:heart: , 6:club: (2 Players)
      Hero bets $0.10, BU folds, Hero gets uncalled back ($0.10)



      Called pre-flop due to the small raise, he most likely had like a A high card with some lower could be 2, 3 or even a Kx or Qx hand, so did this c-bet to protect hand, didn't want him to hit on the turn.

      Hello Rihard4a,

      Donking isn't really the best way to play your hand here, especially not knowing the guy. You ain't making better hands to fold, therefore instead Check it and take a look what he does.

      Best Regards.
