      MP showed 8 6 and won $5.56 ($2.71 net)
      Hero showed A A and lost (-$2.85 net)


      Preflop standard.

      Flop...fish donks for 1bb so I know It is draw or some low pair ,like 7 or 6,so basically I rase for value and protection.

      Turn it's the same case ,but I don't like that 9 ,but I cant get some more value from flush draws ,straight draws ,that he could have now and from his low pairs ,because he donks again for 1bb and I dont expect it if he had straight.

      River is check behind for me ,I dont think I could get some more value from worse hands than mine on this board.

      Hi TreyKing,

      Preflop: We should isolate at least 50-55c here versus two limpers.

      Postflop: The board is a bit connected in the middle and a lot of hands that connect there can call a larger raise so I'd usually make it around $1 there.

      I agree with your turn analysis and raise and I would most likely check the river back as well. A bet there is usually thin unless we expect villain to play Tx like this.
