      CO: $26.08 - VPIP: 33, PFR: 19, 3B: 0, AF: 0,0, Hands: 21

      Hero (BB): $25.15 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 18, 3B: 5, AF: 4,8, Hands: 90087

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is BB with 2 :spade: 2 :club:
      1 fold, CO raises to $0.75, BTN calls $0.75, 1 fold, Hero calls $0.50

      Flop: ($2.35) 2 :diamond: 5 :diamond: 9 :spade: (3 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1.50, BTN folds, Hero raises to $5.25, CO folds

      Opponents = unknowns. Likely not huge fish.

      1) Preflop: is it not better to sqeeze here? Not all that sure we get paid often enough if we hit.

      Flop: at the time of play I thought that since he cBets in a 3way pot he should have at least some equity in the hand and thus I could ch/r and likely get paid.
      However, now I think that check/calling the flop may be better. It defends our check/calling range for future spots + he likely 2nd barrels with most of his made hands anyway. Though I know nothing about how he plays his draws on the turn. And for that reason:

      2) What about ch/c flop, donkbet non-diamond turns (except for such non-diamond turn cards as Q-A, which he may even 2nd barrel with draws – on such cards we may check the turn)?

      Hello Avatars91,

      If there are some bad players around then you can also set-mine here. Other option would be squeezing if assume to have fold equity. Though as you see otherwise postflop there is not much to do whilst we really need to protect our hand from draws. No way to Check/Call being OOP, only option is to donk out yourself.

      Best Regards.
