      Hero bets $1.12, CO raises to $1.26 and is all-in, Hero calls $0.14

      Results:
      $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.
