      Hero bets 4 BB, BTN calls 4 BB

      Hero checks, BTN bets 92.4 BB and is all-in, fold

      BTN wins 67.6 BB

      I raise large on turn because I dont see what he has other than draw, I think he would raise sets. On river, I think I never win if I call?

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: Any reason why we are donking into him here? I prefer to ck and let him bluff a wide part of his range.

      As played I like our turn ck/raise for pure value and the river is one of the worst cards in the deck for us (that and Js). I don't think we beat anything there so ck/folding is fine (and crying a bit inside).

      The reason for donking is that I play 3 tables, and sometimes the actions is on one, but then I see action on second, and time running out, dont have time to see who has initative so I bet.
      I almost always check without initative as you said to let him bluff.
