      CO: $1.01
      BTN: $2.34
      SB: $2.08
      Hero (BB): $2.08
      UTG: $1.86
      UTG+1: $3.67
      UTG+2: $1.20
      MP: $2.02
      MP+1: $0.77

      SB posts SB $0.01, Hero posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has 7:club: 7:diamond:

      Note: I feel that I can call this hand. Hi play loose and I have great implid odds. Villan have 48/40 on 41 hands.


      UTG raises to $0.06, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.04

      Flop: ($0.13, 2 players) T:spade: 8:spade: 2:diamond:
      Hero checks, UTG bets $0.08, Hero calls $0.08

      Turn: ($0.29, 2 players) 2:club:
      Hero bets $0.21, UTG calls $0.21

      River: ($0.71, 2 players) 8:club:

      Note: I bet 50% to see a showdown cheap, can't be sure what he have. Now when I look I can see that only 66,55,44,33 don't bet me. I don't have a good pair of card in long time so I only played 6/6 the last 33 cards. With a loose player infront of me I can't steal the blind as often as I want. So with my tight image I can assume that villan have something and I feel that he would fold on turn if he diden't hit. Kind of all hands he can have to call with beats me so. Should I have bet pot or just check/fold or something else?


      Hero bets $0.35, UTG calls $0.35

      Hero shows 7:club: 7:diamond: (Two Pair, Eights and Sevens) (Pre 49%, Flop 11%, Turn 5%)
      UTG shows J:heart: T:heart: (Two Pair, Tens and Eights) (Pre 51%, Flop 89%, Turn 95%)
      UTG wins $1.36

      You can check/call 2 str here, but you have to fold if this kind of opponent bets third time, you are most of the time beaten on these levels. So I didn't like your donk on turn.

      And by the way, you don't have to take care of your image on these levels that much. Your opponents DON'T think, so they WON'T fold on your moves if they have something, no matter how tight you are. Just play ABC and you'll do fine :)

      Hello mateuszrybinski,

      Not worth donking cause clearly he is CBetting there and if he is going to 2nd barrel then he is very likely to hold a hand. :P If not we might be ahead, therefore I'd just Check the turn and reevaluate further actions.

      Best Regards.
