      Hero (SB): $10.05 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 19, 3B: 5, AF: 4,6, Hands: 56532

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is SB with 9 :diamond: 9 :spade:
      1 fold, MP raises to $0.30, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.25, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.90) 8 :club: 4 :club: 4 :diamond: (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.54, BB calls $0.54, MP folds

      Turn: ($1.98) 3 :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.13, BB folds

      1) What do you think about the donkbet line + betsizes (should be a bit bigger on both the flop and turn, I feel)?
      2) We are committed on the turn if he pushes since he can easily have a FD or even a weaker pair there and we would need only 30% equity to call, which we get, right?
      3) If the turn is a diamond, do we still bet for value? And if we do, should we still go broke?
      4) If the turn is an overcard, e.g. a King or an Ace what would the best line be? We create too much fold equity with a bet, however, there are not that many kings or aces in villain's range.

      Hello Avatars91,

      1) What do you think about the donkbet line + betsizes (should be a bit bigger on both the flop and turn, I feel)?

      Donking is fine but it should also have the purpose of donking which is to protect our hand, so should be bigger bet size.

      2) We are committed on the turn if he pushes since he can easily have a FD or even a weaker pair there and we would need only 30% equity to call, which we get, right?

      Well, such a guy could even have 8x hands. :)

      3) If the turn is a diamond, do we still bet for value? And if we do, should we still go broke?

      Turn is a diamond. :D I assume if it's a , then I would plan to Bet/Fold it more often according his stack size.

      4) If the turn is an overcard, e.g. a King or an Ace what would the best line be? We create too much fold equity with a bet, however, there are not that many kings or aces in villain's range.

      Betting wouldn't make sense, we can only turn our hand into bluff-catcher, although if it's worth vs rather passive guy? That one you have to answer yourself while knowing more the guy on the table than I do, I just have few stats.

      Best Regards.
