      PokerStars - $0.05 NL - Holdem - 9 players

      UTG+1: $5.00
      UTG+2: $4.15
      MP: $8.22
      MP+1: $7.20
      CO: $5.14
      BTN: $6.34
      Hero (SB): $5.12
      BB: $2.00
      UTG: $2.13

      Hero posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.07) Hero has 5:heart: 5:diamond:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to $0.15, Hero calls $0.13, fold

      Flop: ($0.35, 2 players) 5:spade: 7:heart: 2:heart:
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.20, Hero calls $0.20

      Turn: ($0.75, 2 players) 6:spade:
      Hero bets $0.50, BTN raises to $1.30, Hero calls $0.80

      River: ($3.35, 2 players) Q:club:
      Hero checks, BTN bets $4.69 and is all-in, fold

      BTN wins $3.21

      From the beginning I intended to float if I hit the set. That's what I did but got backfired when he raised the turn. After that he overbets shoving in the river; I was completely clueless. ?(

      I think I should have c/r the turn but still can't put him on any hand by looking at the way he played. His ATS was 11 so my guess would be KK+ or 98.

      Hello boozaf,

      Check/Raise the flop mate. :( You need to protect there instead of slowing playing that. Nor I don't really understand what's the purpose of the donk on the turn. :(

      Best Regards.
