      BTN: $9.85 (98.5 bb)
      SB: $5 (50 bb)
      BB: $25.08 (250.8 bb)
      MP: $11.61 (116.1 bb)
      Hero (CO): $10 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K Q
      MP folds, Hero raises to $0.30, BTN folds, SB calls $0.25, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.70) 7 8 J (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.40, SB calls $0.40

      Turn: ($1.50) J (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.80, SB calls $0.80

      River: ($3.10) T (2 players)
      SB bets $0.80, Hero folds

      $3.10 pot ($0.20 rake)
      Final Board: 7 8 J J T
      SB mucked and won $2.90 ($1.40 net)
      Hero mucked K Q and lost (-$1.50 net)


      Preflop standard.

      Flop is cbet ,because I have overcards and I can represent that J and its not too drawy flop. He gold 50% to cbet no flop and 40% on turn.

      Turn is J,not bad card for me ,theres now smaller chance ,that he has hand with J so I bet once more.

      River is interesting ,because of his small donk ...I didnt know what does it mean and I didnt want to bluff against short stack.

      Any idea how to play it ?

      Hi TreyKing,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I think that betting that turn is a mistake. Our equity did not improve and the board did not change. He can still have plenty of Jx and I can't see (m)any better hands that will fold to our bet (and I wouldn't assume this villain floats random hands OOP).

      River is a fold for me.
