      Preflop: Hero is CO with K T

      Final Board: 6 Q 8 6 4
      MP showed 8 K and won $1.12 ($0.57 net)
      Hero mucked K T and lost (-$0.55 net)

      MP - ( $4.95 USD ) - VPIP: 50, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 0.7, Hands: 4

      PF: Iso-raise

      Flop: I chose to raise his donk bet because the flop is relatively dry and I don't think he is repping much. His range is probably a small pair or 6x, 8x or weak Qx. In the case I can't push him off his hand, I still have 6 outs to catch.

      Turn: Not a good card for me to barrel again so I'm checking behind.

      River: 6x is out as he doesn't bet, but I still don't think I can push him off his medium made hand. If I bet, I can only win vs his Ax which folds. Still chose not to bet.

      Did I play the flop correctly?

      Preflop is fine.

      I would fold the flop here against an unknown opponent.
      Board looks quite connected so I doubt that we have too much fold equity here.

      As played on the flop, there's no point in investing more money on the later streets since we are probably not going to have enough fold equity so checking down is fine.
