      CO: $3.96 - VPIP: 36, PFR: 9, 3B: 2, AF: 0,9, Hands: 617
      Hero (BTN): $6.73 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 16, 3B: 4, AF: 2,0, Hands: 105449
      SB: $4.52 - really unknown, 1 read: he posted the blind on EP, so this is his second hand: possibly fish
      BB: $7.62 - VPIP: 18, PFR: 12, 3B: 0, AF: 1,3, Hands: 277
      UTG: $5.84 - VPIP: 31, PFR: 23, 3B: 0, AF: 1,4, Hands: 35

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is BTN with Q :spade: T :spade:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.15, SB calls $0.13, 1 fold

      Flop: ($0.35) Q :club: 9 :diamond: 4 :diamond: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.20, Hero calls $0.20

      Turn: ($0.75) 6 :heart: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.25, Hero raises to $1.06, SB calls $0.81 Bet size got smaller, so his range is weighted for draws, hence the bet.

      River: ($2.87) 2 :spade: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.10, Hero calls $0.10It's either a blocking bet, wanting to see a cheap showdown, or an inducer bet, so I think it makes no sense to raise here.

      Hello,

      Preflop raising is fine of course.

      On the flop calling against the donk is good. We have no information about the player plus our hand isn't good enough to raise here in my opinion.

      As played, I don't really have much against raising the turn to extract value of his draws and probably some weaker made hands.
      I would make it around $0.8 though.

      Calling the river is fine.
      Raising would be too thin without information.

      Best,
      Plamen

      i would. From what i have experienced donks are usually medium to low pairs, draws are played passively by fish, but of course there is the possibility of draws

      I don't want to give the villain a cheap showdown, his line just screams weakness, even fish know to bet big when they got hands

      With KQ I would definitely be more inclined to raise here.
      There are QJ/QT in his range against which we can take value.
