      SB: $3.03 - VPIP: 64, PFR: 4, 3B: 0, AF: 1.1, Hands: 91
      BB: $1.03 - VPIP: 48, PFR: 10, 3B: 0, AF: 2.3, Hands: 115
      UTG: $4.38 - VPIP: 24, PFR: 18, 3B: 0, AF: 1.4, Hands: 51
      CO: $3.44 - VPIP: 55, PFR: 31, 3B: 13, AF: 2.6, Hands: 58
      [b]Hero (BTN): $5.50

      Pre Flop: ($0.06) Hero is BTN with T :spade: 7 :spade:
      UTG raises to $0.12, 1 fold, Hero raises to $0.36, SB calls $0.34, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.88) 9 :spade: T :diamond: 9 :diamond: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.16, Hero calls $0.16

      Turn: ($1.20) J :heart: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.32, Hero calls $0.32

      River: ($1.84) 4 :heart: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.64, Hero calls $0.64


      As you can tell SB is a fish. I don't have any reads on his betsize atm. What should I do against the small donkbet? He donks 27%(11) in regular pots on flop. I think raising is an option because I'm not glad if there falls a J+, but in the mean time I also don't want to blow up the pot with a medium strength hand. As played I just decide to call down since I'm getting a good price. Thanks.

      I just can't see that WHY are you 3-betting these hand pre-flop, it's not worth it (unless you know that your opponent steals a lot and folds to 3bet more than 50 %)

      Pof: calling it down is fine, though there could be some better Tx-hands.

      I think mixing up your 3-bet range with T7s is perfectly fine, but that would often lead you these situations. If you don´t want to raise flop 1.2$ and play for stacks then I think you can easily also just call him down, often he is bluffing, sometimes betting worse hands and he may always have there missed draw

      best regards,

      Got to add, that given the limits we play, we shouldn't be mixing our 3-bet range, it just mess up our game. Balancing isn't the key, abc poker is better, IMO.
