      BTN: $1.18 (59 bb)
      Hero (SB): $2.08 (104 bb)
      BB: $0.84 (42 bb)
      UTG+1: $1.88 (94 bb)
      UTG+2: $1.02 (51 bb)
      MP1: $1.86 (93 bb)
      MP2: $3.07 (153.5 bb)
      MP3: $2.46 (123 bb)
      CO: $2 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K A
      5 folds, CO raises to $0.07, BTN folds, Hero raises to $0.24, BB folds, CO calls $0.16

      Flop: ($0.50) 6 9 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.25, CO raises to $0.50, Hero calls $0.25

      Turn: ($1.50) J (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      River: ($1.50) 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.12, CO raises to $1.26 and is all-in, Hero calls $0.14

      $4.02 pot ($0.20 rake)
      Final Board: 6 9 6 J 7
      Hero mucked K A and lost (-$2 net)
      CO showed 4 7 and won $3.82 ($1.82 net)

      Should I have shipped the turn or even earlier? This donk raises 90% of the time with total junk, calls 3bet resteals with total junk and reraises flop with junk. Seen it a few times in this session. I was right again this time round. But unfortunately he hit the river. Should I avoid this kind of play at microstakes even against such maniacs? He is 73/50/13.3

      Hello tommygecko,

      Well then 3bet it and get it in. Doesn't really make sense to call and let him hit something, he is able to Check behind there. Nor I don't really get why are you betting the river, could you explain it? :)

      Best Regards.
