      BTN: $4.22 - VPIP: 8, PFR: 7, 3B: 0, AF: 0,7, Hands: 107
      SB: $0.65 - VPIP: 44, PFR: 16, 3B: 0, AF: 2,3, Hands: 139
      Hero (BB): $5.42 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 16, 3B: 4, AF: 2,0, Hands: 97834
      UTG: $2.15 - VPIP: 56, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 0,6, Hands: 25
      CO: $5.00 - VPIP: 13, PFR: 13, 3B: 0, AF: 3,0, Hands: 30

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is BB with 4 :heart: 4 :spade:
      1 fold, CO raises to $0.15, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.32) 5 :heart: 7 :spade: Q :heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.10, Hero raises to $0.35, CO raises to $1.15, Hero folds
      I'm really, honestly angry. When I have a set, they NEVER pay me up. But when I do the SAME play as a bluff, they DO NOT FOLD. WTF, how is that possible? I feel like I'm very-very unlucky.

      Hi Imimba,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Do you think that villains cbet this small as a bluff? They almost always do it (The regs anyway) to induce raises.

      So I would happily check/fold there.

      you are saying that: Do you think that villains cbet this small as a bluff? They almost always do it (The regs anyway) to induce raises.

      Should I change my gameplan to:
      1) raise PSB donk w/air on flop vs fish? If I would raise to 3x his PSB I need win only 2/3 times and it's look super strong.
      2) coldown PSB donk w/TPTK+ ? If I have something strong enough should I just play call call call?
      3) small donk just call w/ something small
      4) small donk just fold w/ air
      ?

      We aren't really playing against a fish here though, at least we don't have any info that we are.

      And each fish is different when it comes to donking so I would recommend against having a "general" rule for raising their PSB donks.

      PSB polarizes someones range almost always, so if the fish is aggro and loose that means that he has a pretty good chance of having nothing (because the good hands are so rare).
