      Party, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 8 Players

      UTG+2: $10.25 (102.5 bb)
      MP2: $12.30 (123 bb)
      Hero (MP1): $13.43 (134.3 bb)
      CO: $10 (100 bb)
      BTN: $10 (100 bb)
      MP3: $24.95 (249.5 bb)
      SB: $10 (100 bb)
      BB: $26.43 (264.3 bb) 57/19/5.9/2.4 (47) 25% Donk bet v/p/3/af (H)

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with T T
      UTG+2 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, 5 folds, BB calls $0.20
      At these tables, I've been open raising 3bb, since that seems to be the standard.
      Open raising 66+ also seems to be working for me, due to the number of times it gets folded around. If I get called, a CBet will often win the pot, so I've been raising pairs a lot

      Flop: ($0.65) A 6 6 (2 players)
      BB bets $0.31, Hero calls $0.31
      With this guy's stats, I felt reasonably sure he just called out of habit and donked.
      He had been getting away with this a lot, and after only 47 hands was up over a BI.
      Should I have raised here to make him pay for another card, or is the A a signal to play for pot control even against this guy?

      Turn: ($1.27) 2 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero ???
      I think I'm ahead of him, so I actually bet for value here.
      Or did I just turn my hand into a bluff?


      Hero bets $0.90, BB folds

      $1.27 pot ($0.06 rake)
      Final Board: A 6 6 2
      Hero mucked T T and won $1.21 ($0.60 net)
      BB mucked and lost (-$0.61 net)

      My standard raise is also 3bb at any position. Postflop I would likely raise flop, since his lead seems like draw or air and although I might call there with KK I don´t really want him to see free turn card smt like QJ that might win him the pot.
      I would also bet turn for value to protect my hand and get value from worse

      best regards,
