      No Limit Hold'em $0.05/$0.10
      7 players
      Formatted by pokercopilot.com - Mac OS X hand history analysis and tracking

      UTG - UTG ($4.00)
      UTG+1 - UTG+1 ($9.92) vpip 62 prf 20 agg% 78 # 91
      MP - MP ($15.33)
      CO - CO ($10.00)
      BTN - BTN ($4.09)
      SB - SB ($10.00)
      BB - Hero ($10.00)

      Preflop: ($0.14, 7 players) Hero is BB with A:spade: K:diamond:
      1 fold, UTG+1 calls $0.10, 4 folds, Hero raises to $0.60, UTG+1 calls $0.50

      Flop: 8:spade: 5:spade: 9:heart: ($1.24, 2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG+1 bets $0.40, Hero calls $0.40

      I decided to call because I thought I had enough implied odds for TPTK.

      Turn: A:heart: ($2.04, 2 players)
      Hero bets $1.40, UTG+1 raises to $2.80, Hero raises to $9.00 (all-in), UTG+1 calls $6.12 (all-in), Uncalled bet of $0.08 returned to Hero

      Do you think this is overplaying my TPTK against this fish?

      River: 8:diamond: ($19.88, 2 players, 1 all-in)

      I think check raise turn is more profitable than donk. He has super high aggression frequencies and turned Ace is perceived as the perfect bluff card.

      As played, when he raises its awkward. He is very aggro which can lead him to have raised unexpected hands like AQ,AJ so your re-ship may not be bad. If you call the min raise, you have to plan to call the river too so if he doesn't have bluffs, which I doubt he will have, then shipping turn is better than call,call.

      I think folding to the min raise is best unless you have seen him min raise with bluff hands or blocker hands, in stupid spots in the past. But don't beat yourself up about this. Nearly no one is capable of making hero folds like this.
