      notes
      l/c w K5o, check AKxss, donk 2 bb 7 when FD posible w 2nd pair, check 7
      call cbet AJxss w JT, cbh blank turn and blank river

      On turn I did not cbet because with such fcbet he should fold his trash on flop. So now he should have draws and pairs.

      Once he bets so small, I thought he could have weak hand like draw and wants to get some FE. And I have some outs for overcards. On turn he has some aggression.

      Hi Speed,

      So on the turn we raised to get value from his draws? I can't imagine us having much FE there at all.

      What's our plan if he bets river on a blank?

      get value from darws and make folds from weak pairs. Also if I take down the pot now, its also good. For example 4x maybe can fold. But probably thats it, so not much FE. Vs such bet I thought I have more.

      For value from draws its too thin to raise I guess. So what to do? Call or fold?

      My main plan was to take down the pot because his bet looked like a bluff, so I did not think about river and probably plan was to just give up.

      Raising for value is a bit thin because we are OOP and we don't know if he can bluff the river once we check to him (we can expect him to check some amount of the time).

      The problem with these fishy guys is that I don't think he can fold a pair to just one raise on the turn even as weak as 4x (45 has a draw for example).
      If we really wanted thin value and to attempt to take the pot down I feel that a double barrel is better suited than a ck/raise.
