      SB wins $4.94

      Villain is playing 26/23 on 50 hands with AFq 56% if that has any value vs the line he took.

      PF i think the fish limop calls alot so that is why i called for 3bb, which is agood price.

      On the turn i do not see many hands that ch called the flop to continue but i do not want to miss vallue from draws and stubborn Jx maybe AK so i bet small.

      On the river i try to think about his line. And he only represent a flush, 64, 69. Sometimes he will have KJ but i cannot call when he bets that big because this betting size makes it less likely to have some hand i beat.

      Hey Deomedes,

      I like the way you played this hand.

      Donk flop is good, you don't want to give free card multi-way on this texture.

      Turn card is bad for you, but you pick a decent bet sizing to extract maximum value from villain's range.

      River - Villain usually just has a flush. Good fold.
