      Hero (BTN): $18.86 (117.9 bb)
      SB: $17.68 (110.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with T T
      UTG folds, MP calls $0.16, CO folds, Hero raises to $0.64, SB folds, BB calls $0.48, MP calls $0.48

      $5.84 pot ($0.26 rake)
      Final Board: 8 4 5 A 6
      MP mucked and won $5.58 ($3.02 net)
      Hero mucked T T and lost (-$2.56 net)

      Villian is 26/1 over 114 hands

      Flop: im betting for value vs 8x,FDs,SDs.

      Turn: Usually ive found when fish donk turn, theyre telling you that the turn improved them somehow, which makes me think villian could have a hand such as A8,A4,A5,A6,A7. But then im thinking i think he would donk bigger if he had TP/2 pair, so i decide to call as i think he can still be donking draws?

      River: Again villian bets small in relation to the pot size, but now i lose to all Ax, 7x, etc.

      My main question is whether my thought process is correct on the turn, should i fold turn?

      Hi Keoghh,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I think that villains bets could be a blocker bet with 8x (or draws), or other pairs so I don't think we can fold the river as played.

      We have an argument for raise/folding the turn and checking back the river as well.

      If his donk tells you that he improved you should fold the turn however I do not necessarily agree with that. I see fish block betting in spots like this a lot.
