      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      UTG+1: $2.96
      MP: $1.54
      MP+1: $3.00
      CO: $0.96
      BTN: $1.09
      Hero (SB): $2.00
      BB: $2.00
      UTG: $2.03

      Hero posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero has J:heart: A:club:

      fold, UTG+1 calls $0.02, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.12, fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.22, Hero calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.46, 2 players) J:club: 9:club: 5:diamond:
      Hero bets $0.33, UTG+1 calls $0.33

      Turn: ($1.12, 2 players) 8:spade:
      Hero bets $0.81, UTG+1 calls $0.81

      River: ($2.74, 2 players) 7:diamond:
      Hero bets $0.64 and is all-in, UTG+1 calls $0.64

      I think the preflop call was iffy, but it was a minraise. This villain I only ended up playing 8 hands with, but he was vpip/pfr 83/25. I thought he could be on anything and calling down with a lot of weaker hands...
      Was I too agressive?

      alarm bells should be ringing in your head when you get min-reraised.

      Would think about folding right away. Anyway when you hit you need to play bluffcatcher against his random hands like 76s or even AK. Betting serves no purpose at all. Remember that the most likely hand after he takes this line is AA, followed by KK.

      So I c/c once and take it from there, probably folding turn mostly.

      Does this get affected at all for being NL2 with very very fishy opponents?

      As with this hand, they paired the lower board than me and still got it all in...

      Hello PhoenixPhreak,

      Preflop: Just fold it preflop cause you will very often face a trap which limp/raises.

      As played
      Postflop: Why are you donking here? :f_cry: You weren't even PFA... Let him bluff against you if you assumed he had a loose preflop range.

      Best Regards.
