      CO: $3 (150 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $2 (100 bb)
      SB: $6.20 (310 bb)
      BB: $6.94 (347 bb)
      UTG: $1.54 (77 bb)
      MP: $0.80 (40 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with 7 6
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.06, SB calls $0.05, BB calls $0.04

      Flop: ($0.18) A 9 4 (3 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $0.10, SB calls $0.10, BB folds

      Turn: ($0.38) 2 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.24, SB calls $0.24

      River: ($0.86) 2 (2 players)
      SB bets $1.04, Hero?

      Why this freaken game is so hard? :f_cry: :f_biggrin:

      Should the equation be:

      smallish flush + paired board + river donk overbet = fold + cry + nag on the forum?

      Hey German,

      I'm assuming we have no reads on the guy?

      We need roughly 35% pot odds which means that we need to win this hand 4 out of 10 times to show a tiny profit.

      What hand that calls flop and turn can pot river and we beat? Ax and something like Kh9 maybe. Since we can't really expect him to donk the river with Ax I would cry a little and then hit that magic button, called fold.
