      CO: $4.04 (101 bb)
      BTN: $4.08 (102 bb)
      SB: $4.98 (124.5 bb)
      BB: $4.26 (106.5 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $5.84 (146 bb)
      MP: $4 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with 7:heart: 7:spade:
      Hero raises to $0.12, 3 folds, SB calls $0.10, BB calls $0.08

      Flop: ($0.36) A:club: 7:club: 3:diamond: (3 players)
      SB checks, BB bets $0.36, Hero calls $0.36, SB folds

      Turn: ($1.08) A:diamond: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.44, BB calls $0.44

      River: ($1.96) Q:diamond: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.80, BB calls $0.80

      Here are my mistakes: I've thought that I don't want him to fold because I have FH and down't want to let his FD's fold but I miss the value. If he's a fish he will call anyway and probably donk push on R when he hit. If he has an ace he won't fold it on the T. And probably he may even call on Flush R with trips, what do you think about it?

      I should play:
      T: 97, R (195) 1.7 and call his push on R

      Hello,

      Preflop is fine.

      I don't mind flatting the flop here against a pot size donk.

      As played, definitely bet bigger on the turn - like $0.75.

      On the river I'd bet bigger as well - around $1.3-$1.4.

      Best,
      Plamen

      I think the river could go for $1.7, but I think betting $0.75 on the turn is better.
      I think betting this big, and him being OOP might incline him to fold.

      Ok, but what do you think about his range?
      he donk bet this flop so he’ll probably have something like: Ax, 33, sometimes 99+, Kxs
      he won’t fold: Ax, 33
      he won’t call: bluffs from F
      dynamic calling range is: Kxs,99+
      and you think we should bet smaller to take calls from Kxs and from 99+?

      Yeah, it's obvious that Ax is never folding here no matter how much we bet, but I think if we bet around $0.75 here we can called easier from FD and hands like PP/7x.


      What do you think about overbetting the river here?
      I mean, we expect his calling range to be mostly Ax and I really doubt that most people would be able to fold Ax on this limit, so I think shoving is quite a good option for the river.

      You mean just push river ?
      I've never thought about it but push river seems pretty good. 33 and Ax will call it anyway. FD won't call any bet so it's for pure value

      Yeah, just push it considering that he has just 1.5x pot bet left.
