      CO: $2.62 (131 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with 9 J
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.05, SB calls $0.04, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.12) 2 4 J (2 players)
      SB bets $0.10, Hero raises to $0.25, SB calls $0.15

      Turn: ($0.62) K (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($0.62) K (2 players)
      SB bets $0.68, Hero folds

      $0.62 pot ($0.02 rake)
      Final Board: 2 4 J K K
      Hero mucked 9 J and lost (-$0.30 net)
      SB mucked and won $0.60 ($0.30 net)

      Not sure if it's okay to raise his donk bet on the flop? I don't wanna x/c 2-3 streets w/o knowing his range.

      Once he calls my raise, I narrowed his range down to Jx, set or FD. The board basically got worse and worse for me.

      wp! good sizings. easy fold if he shoves on the flop. if the turn is a blanko i would bet 1/2 pot and chback river. imo perfect raise on the flop as we want to know where we are at + get value from the draw :)

      Hello cheekopeh,

      You should ask yourself on the flop already if you can raise for value there vs almost a pot size Bet? ;) You might just value-town yourself with such a play whilst he has a lot of better Jx hands in his range, therefore might want to play it instead way ahead/behind.

      If you raising then do properly, right now you ain't even forcing him to make mistakes, if he has a draw he can call you = raise size doesn't make sense at all.

      Best Regards.
