      Hi

      IPoker Network $10.00 No Limit Hold'em - 6 players - View hand 2097481
      DeucesCracked Poker Videos Hand History Converter

      BB: $12.57 - VPIP: 19, PFR: 15, 3B: 6, AF: 2.3, Hands: 397
      Hero (UTG): $10.00 - VPIP: 20, PFR: 17, 3B: 8, AF: 3.3, Hands: 24329
      MP: $12.30 - VPIP: 18, PFR: 15, 3B: 6, AF: 2.7, Hands: 552
      CO: $10.00 - VPIP: 100, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 1.0, Hands: 2
      BTN: $9.52 - VPIP: 14, PFR: 11, 3B: 4, AF: 1.4, Hands: 644
      SB: $1.58 - VPIP: 19, PFR: 15, 3B: 6, AF: 2.3, Hands: 397

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is UTG with Q :heart: Q :spade:
      Hero raises to $0.40, 1 fold, CO calls $0.40, BTN calls $0.40, 2 folds

      Flop: ($1.35) 7 :diamond: 4 :club: T :diamond: (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.90, CO raises to $1.80, BTN folds, Hero calls $0.90

      Turn: ($4.95) 2 :club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.50, CO raises to $3, Hero folds

      Final Pot: $7.95
      CO wins $7.42
      (Rake: $0.53)

      the min raises were very fast, I wasn't slow too and he almost didn't have time to think. I didn't want to go all in with a pair just in single raised pot. Although, it was very drawy and the vilain looks like a fish (no stats of him and small raising sizing) Fishes don't bluff with draws very often with small raises, right?

      Hey ezeras,

      Preflop is fine.

      Cbet flop for value is fine.

      When flop cbet gets raised on I'd probably fold. Most 10nl players are very unblanced here and usually just have a set or a monster draw. He is less likely to raise light with the BTN still to act behind him also.

      Given villains strongish range on the turn I don't see what donk-betting achieves. I'd probably check/fold unless villain bets really small, and hope villain sometimes checks back.

      Against really aggressive opponents you could check/call or check/raise but with no info I'd check/fold turn.

      Do you think fish can't min raise with pair of tens on this drawy board?

      They certainly can. I recommend you assume they don't until you know otherwise. The majority of fish will flat Tx. By folding QQ when your opponent has a set here you are playing very exploitatively.

      If you knew opponent played Tx and wider this way, your best option is usually to flat flop and then check/call turn as opposed to donking. You keep your opponents range wider this way.

      Maybe you will find this hand interesting Nl10 Zoom Jj Check out my last post in the thread when I was asked the question if it makes us too exploitable if we fold overpair here.
