      Hey chaps,
      Please take a look at this, wasn't sure what to to here...

      Known Players:
      MP2: $2.03 - 102 bb
      MP3: $2.03 - 102 bb
      CO: $2.00 - 100 bb
      BU: $6.27 - 314 bb
      SB: $2.30 - 115 bb
      BB: $1.00 - 50 bb

      0.01/0.02 No Limit Hold'em (6 Handed)
      Hand recorder for this hand: PokerStrategy.com SideKick 1.0.51121.2

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:club: , Q:club:
      Hero posts small blind ($0.01), BB posts big blind ($0.02), MP2 calls, MP3 raises for $0.10, 2 folds, Hero calls, BB folds, MP2 calls

      Flop: ($0.32 - 16 bb) Q:spade: , 8:spade: , 5:club: (3 Players)
      Hero bets $0.20, MP2 calls, MP3 folds

      Turn: ($0.72 - 36 bb) 2:heart: (2 Players)
      Hero bets $0.34, MP2 raises for $0.70, Hero calls

      River: ($2.12 - 106 bb) 9:club: (2 Players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $0.64, Hero calls

      What line would you advise? Is it a bet/fold on the turn? I guess I called turn as it could have been a draw and called river as spades missed. Looking at it now I don't know why I didn't 3-bet pre-flop. I suppose I would have taken it down there and then if I had.

      Hi Red,

      Preflop: looks fine. We could 3-bet to attack the dead money but it would be a bluff against unknown full stack MP3.

      Flop: I like the donk because we can now isolate the fish (limper) and force the preflop raiser to a tougher decision. But mostly we donk for value/proteaction vs Mp2.

      Turn: At these limits versus unknown fishy opponents I'm looking to bet/fold. So I'd bet/fold here as well. If you call we have to call all blank rivers especially with these sizes.
