      iPoker - $0.20 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (BB): 106.8 BB
      UTG: 25.75 BB
      MP: 26.25 BB
      CO: 40.5 BB
      BTN: 87.75 BB
      SB: 278.15 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has A:diamond: T:diamond:

      fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to 3 BB, fold, Hero calls 2 BB

      Flop: (6.5 BB, 2 players) 2:club: 2:spade: J:diamond:
      Hero checks, BTN bets 3.25 BB, Hero calls 3.25 BB

      Turn: (13 BB, 2 players) 6:spade:
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      River: (13 BB, 2 players) 7:spade:
      Hero bets 8 BB, BTN raises to 27.75 BB, fold

      BTN wins 27.55 BB

      1.2 k hands, 22/14, steal 38%, fold steal to 3bet 44%.

      I didn't want to 3bet him, because he doesnt fold enough, and ATs is not that great.
      So I expect to dominate his hand when I call. Is it ok to call his cbet? Or to donk when I miss, but he is also unlikely to hit?
      River I am not sure if I need to bet? I have showdown value, so If I try to fold his PP, 6x, 7x, it will hardly happen imo, so I think I should just check and give up.

      donking is quite intresesting but against 38% I think you can't donk too profitably on this board. I like your play, I think betting river is good for 2 reasons:
      1) you bluff him off AQ, AK, 33, 44 imo easily.
      2) you cannot check/call so you avoid getting bluffed too.
