      BB: $20.09 (200.9 bb)
      MP: $10.09 (100.9 bb)
      CO: $15.02 (150.2 bb)
      BTN: $10.37 (103.7 bb)
      Hero (SB): $10.05 (100.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A K
      2 folds, BTN raises to $0.25, Hero calls $0.20, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.60) Q T K (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.30, Hero calls $0.30

      Turn: ($1.20) Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      River: ($1.20) A (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.80, Hero calls $0.80

      PRE: reason for not 3betting. BTN has high FT3B (76%) we dominate alot of his stealing range, 3betting isolates us v stronger range oop :(

      FLOP: check and let him bet his wiide range :D dont think raising makes sense here as he just folds everything we beat, he might continue with Jx but hes smart enough to know he wont be getting paid if he hits.

      TURN: abit of a scary card, still think he would barrel this with all his Ax and Jx hands. but he doesnt, so i think he could have just been 1 barrelling with his cbet bluffs.

      RIVER: im kinda lost here.. but i try explian my thoughts

      If we bet, again we just fold out everything we beat. I think we could get called by all his weaker aces thinking he just splits the pot, if we had AJ we wouldnt be so passive Aand AK seems unlikely since we didnt 3B pre.

      If we check, he can bet his wide range that gave up on the turn thinking he now has FE repping a J. He could also Vbet thinking he gets a call from Tx and Kx hands, but we dont have many Tx in our range and our few Kx have the straight or a boat.

      i call as i think he bluffs alot here....

      I think not 3betting preflop is a huge mistake.
      So if he fold a lot (and I don't think that 76% is pretty high) we should just 3bet him a lot and again, AKo will be in our 3betting range.
      In this situation we just waste the opportunity, to take the pot right here, also we give quite good odds for BB to come in and we would have a hard time playing without the initiative OOP if we miss.
      So 3betting here is the best thing to do

      I think we can just donk the flop. The board is quite drawy, and we want to take the initiative.
      Also don't really mind to take the pot right here, right?

      In my opinion, if you think he is able to bluff in this spot here, check/calling river is just fine.
      The other option is to bet ourselves sth like 1/2 pot and fold to a raise.
