      Hand recorder for this hand: PokerStrategy.com SideKick 1.1.116.1

      Preflop: Hero is BU with A:heart: , K:spade:
      SB posts small blind ($0.05), BB posts big blind ($0.10), MP3 folds, CO raises for $0.30, Hero 3-bets $0.90, 2 folds, CO calls

      Flop: ($1.95 - 19.50 bb) J:spade: , 6:spade: , 2:club: (2 Players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $1, CO calls

      Turn: ($3.95 - 39.50 bb) 3:spade: (2 Players)
      CO bets $2.60, Hero folds, CO gets uncalled back ($2.60)

      I guess this is pretty straightforward, but these are the ones that confuse me.
      I want to move up the limits because bad players confuse me and make
      me play bad, but i'm stuck with this shit.
      I might even suck alittle myself.

      So my questions are as following:
      Why do you think he donks on the turn, bluff or "value"? (should i care?)
      Am i right to put him on either a set or a flush?
      How is my betsizing on the flop, maybe i should check instead?

      Any info is accepted gratefully

      Hello,

      Preflop is good.

      On the flop I think your cbet is good and your sizing is fine. We have two overcards and backdoors so we can barrel some turns as well.

      I think folding the turn is fine.
      I can hardly tell you why he donks here since we have no info on him, but considering our hand strength folding is fine.
      Yes, we have two overcards and flush draw, but we can easily hit one of our outs on the river and still lose, since we have big reversed implied odds.

      Best,
      Plamen
