      Hero mucked 4 A and won $6.94 ($3.34 net)
      BB mucked and lost (-$3.60 net)

      45/9 over 11, not a good sample, but his stack size says something.

      His donk bet on the turn looks really weak, i though Qx, Jx and FDs trying to get cheap river card.

      Plan was raise/ fold turn. and jam any non , or A river ( he has less than pot size left)

      When he Donks out turn although he is weak he is not likely to fold his hand. Usually they like to call to draw or call with a marginal hand like 2nd pair.

      And if you do want to bluff off his 2nd pair you need to bet pretty big on the river which you did. I and even if you bet big he might decide to call with his 2nd pair hand some times.

      I don't like the idea of pushing the fish off his hands especially when his vpip is so high at 45%. Against such opponents I think it's better to fold weak hands like what you have and bet against him medium strength hands like 2nd pair or better for value.
