      Hero (BTN): $81.41 (162.8 bb)
      SB: $14.50 (29 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with 8 7
      UTG raises to $1.50, MP calls $1.50, CO folds, Hero calls $1.50, SB calls $1.25, BB calls $1

      Flop: ($7.50) Q 3 6 (5 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, UTG bets $5, MP calls $5, Hero calls $5, 2 folds

      Turn: ($22.50) J (3 players)
      UTG checks, MP checks, Hero bets $11.50, UTG calls $11.50, MP folds

      River: ($45.50) 3 (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $17, UTG raises to $76.82 and is all-in, Hero folds

      Villain is kinda fishy and passive, 25/16 300 hands, AF=0.9, WTSD 38
      I hate the paired board on the river, but since he checks, I still bet that amount expecting a lot of calls from AQ and KK-AA. Don't I loose a lot of value by not making this river bet?
      I'm so frustrated by these guys who decide to play a FH like that on the river, I would always donk that river 1/2 pot, cause really, how many times can you fold the flush there.

      Hello circoflax,

      Doubt that we can do much here than Bet/Fold it. But about his play, if I'd donk then most likely I'd donk it still bigger than just 1/2 pot size cause flush will very often call the donk. Though Check/Raise may also work out vs rather looser player.

      Best Regards.
