      Prima, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      CO: $77.73 (155.5 bb)
      BTN: $56.38 (112.8 bb)
      SB: $38.68 (77.4 bb)
      Hero (BB): $61.35 (122.7 bb)
      UTG: $20.75 (41.5 bb)
      MP: $82.37 (164.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q K
      2 folds, CO raises to $1.50, 2 folds, Hero calls $1

      Flop: ($3.25) Q 7 T (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.25, CO raises to $6, Hero calls $3.75

      Turn: ($15.25) 7 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $8.50, Hero calls $8.50

      River: ($32.25) Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      $32.25 pot ($1.61 rake)
      Final Board: Q 7 T 7 Q
      CO mucked J 8 and lost (-$16 net)
      Hero showed Q K and won $30.64 ($14.64 net)

      CO was aggressive reg.

      I don't think I can expect him to cbet this board all the time and also I think he will often but me on a draw and play accordingly. This is the assumption on which I will play the hand.

      After he raises as I sad I think he is putting me on a draw so I think my value is in bluff catching.

      villain's flop raise sizing makes his hand seem more weighted towards semi-bluffs than very strong made value hands (although i dont play NL50 and am no expert)

      villain's hand range seems to be straight draws like AK/AJ/KJ/K9/J9 plus all Ahigh/Khigh fds he opens with. sometimes villain maybe has 7d5d-7d9d w bp +bdfd and hands like JT/QJ

      turn bet seems to confirm that villain is drawing/bluffing. board does not really change except for 7x hands, which most likely would bet bigger.

      river is obviously great card. i cannot see villain calling a bet here often at all.

      i am surprised that villain failed to bet river vs hero line which does look a lot like a draw

      note: i could be way off as i dont play as high as NL50

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      If you are willing to donk those spots then you should also be planning to call-down vs his aggressive range. Though that's true that unless he has huge CB he wont be Betting those boards.

      Best Regards.
