      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q:diamond: 9:diamond:
      MP folds, Hero raises to $0.15, BTN folds, SB calls $0.13, BB calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.45) 9:heart: 8:heart: 8:diamond: (3 players)
      SB checks, BB bets $0.35, Hero raises to $1.05, SB folds, BB calls $0.70

      BB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($2.55) 7:spade: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      on the flop i am not sure if my raise is good . I raise cause his donk looks kinda strong like overpairs like TT, but he can also have hands like t9 j9 type of hands .But then on turn and river i am not sure what is the best play

      Hi Noulispa,

      Preflop: Looks good

      Flop: Are we raise/folding?

      I think that if we get 3-bet, considering he is mostly unknown we cannot go with the hand.

      Turn: As played why not bet for value again? His range still has draws and worse 9x and we can expect some of the better hands to raise the flop.

      River: Since we didn't bet turn I'd bet here 1/2 pot but I definitely prefer the valuebet on the turn to get value from draws.

      If you think his donking range is that strong why would you want to raise with Q9?

      I actually don't mind your raise, although I'd raise smaller, you don't want him to hero-fold worse 9s and/or straight/flush draws and only call with 8x + overpairs. Since you raise the flop you should definitely bet again on blankish turn which puts another FD out there.

      You are targetting draws so your plan on most rivers should be to check-back (after you bet the turn) and take the showdown vs TJ, QT, 67, flushdraws, etc.
