      CO: $8.92 - VPIP: 39, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 1,7, Hands: 332
      Hero (BTN): $10.93 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 16, 3B: 4, AF: 2,0, Hands: 80014
      SB: $8.64 - VPIP: 27, PFR: 23, 3B: 12, AF: 3,3, Hands: 128 (before this hand: CC: 3 (three!!!)%; MULTITABLER REG
      BB: $8.14 - VPIP: 24, PFR: 12, 3B: 0, AF: 0,0, Hands: 17
      UTG: $11.74 - VPIP: 24, PFR: 17, 3B: 3, AF: 4,0, Hands: 78
      MP: $7.01 - VPIP: 15, PFR: 9, 3B: 7, AF: 0,0, Hands: 99

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BTN with K :spade: T :heart:
      2 folds, CO calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.40, SB calls $0.35, 1 fold, CO calls $0.30

      Flop: ($1.30) 2 :spade: 5 :heart: 4 :diamond: (3 players)
      SB checks, CO checks, Hero checks
      SB is a setminer, so I'd rather give up
      Turn: ($1.30) T :diamond: (3 players)
      SB bets $0.75, CO calls $0.75, Hero? The worst card came, really marginal decision. Villain could donk with66-99 aswell, but I'm not sure. Would he donk bigger with an actual set? I really dont know, is there a GOOD decision here?

      Hello,

      Preflop I'd make it pot size.

      Checking back on this flop looks good to me.

      I think calling turn is the right thing to do. They still can have worse hands such as weaker Tx or PP and even some Ax or so.

      Best,

      What is our river plan? Fold unimproved, call improved?

      Hey Imimba1,

      I see why this could potentially be an awkward river situation. However, not necessarily, think about some of the potential river cards that might hit.

      Assume a Q, A, K, J and he bets big. He's no longer repping worse Ts unless he specifically has improved to 2 pair and you are beat. If river is a 3 an Ace or a diamond it hits the CO range that he flatted turn with (flush-draws/ straight draws). If SB bets and CO raises or even calls on one of these rivers you can usually fold.

      Basically the only difficult decisions are when river card is blankish, like a 9 or a 2, and maybe you have to pay off villain (provided he doesn't overbet or pot really fast). Even on these cards SB is not necessarily firing river 100% though, he might have been semi-bluffing the turn after flop goes check-check. In these cases there is a chance of seeing a free showdown.
