      Preflop: Hero is UTG with A A
      Hero raises to $0.20, 4 folds, BB calls $0.15

      Flop: ($0.37) A 5 7 (2 players)

      Turn: ($2.07) K (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $1.45, BB calls $1.45

      River: ($4.97) T (2 players)

      $4.97 pot ($0.20 rake)
      Final Board: A 5 7 K T
      BB mucked and won $4.77 ($2.32 net)
      Hero mucked A A and lost (-$2.50 net)

      Villain is unknown. Don't know what happened w HM2 here, his stack is 0. But he had >100bbs

      Flop: He donks close to pot-size and I raise for value and protection against flushes. When he calls, flushes, sets and 2pairs are in his range. Ax would be rare with the case A

      Turn: A bad card for me, but I decided to bet again as I feel I can get value from his stated range.

      River: When he donk shoves like this, it's really difficult for me. I can leave out 2pairs as I don't think he will play this way. I'm left w sets and made flush on the turn which decided to slowplay. I think he is more likely to play flushes this way though.

      Hi Checkopeh,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: Considering he donked really big I like our raise for value/protection. He can donk/call Ax, 2p, 55, 77, FDs.

      Turn: Bad card for us and there is some value to be gained from some Ax, the 2p/sets but not a ton since he may actually fold Ax/weak 2p (57).

      I would bet slightly smaller to something like $1.15-$1.20 so I can keep more of the weaker range in.

      River: It's a tough spot. The only hands that could shove that we beat are ATc and maybe the weaker sets.

      I think that he could play flushes like this almost always while sets/2p not so much. So folding while tighter it's not bad.
