      Hey guys!

      vill: 24/17/1,6 after 1k1 hands
      RFI UTG: 18%
      FT3b: 55%
      Call 3b: 41%
      4b: 5%
      cb: 63%
      f2cb: 47%
      call donk: 43 (7)
      raise donk: 43 (7)
      fold donk: 14 (7)

      I have no obvious reads on villain which is just bad I'm sorry. I have one note that he raised my $2 cb to $5,35, I shove pot now is $17 he has $3,5 behind and he folded. Plus I've seen him complete/3b in SB unraised pot. So although his stats look reggy he's not very good.

      Pre: I don't really want to 3b because he calls a lot plus he's in UTG so he's got a rather tight range so I would isolate myself vs better hands.

      Flop: I decided to donk because he has a low cb %. I don't want him to check back and see a highcard ott. Maybe this thinking is wrong because he doesn't fold a lot either and I'm better off w/ going to SD cheap.

      Turn: Not the best card I think I should've c/fed here. He has a lot of Qx hands right?

      River: as played easy c/f.

      Interesting hand. What I want to point out at the beginning right away, is that we should consider the notes mainly if they were against us. This said, his complete/3bet from the SB might me reasonable against a specific kind of opponent.

      Now to the hand:

      Since the guy is on CO, not UTG, we have quite an easy 3bet for value here with our TT.
      Also, he 4bets quite small, so I would expect us to be mostly behind if he 3bets.

      Donk stats doesn't tell us much, since we have a small sample on this, but we can say that he is probably not going to fold much. I expect him to raise his good made hands/draws and probably some bluffs, and call with some mediocre made hands plus some overcards with backdoors or something.
      This said, I don't really mind donking here, since there are quite a lot of worse hands to continue, but I am going to make it $0.6.

      I do think that there is value in betting the turn against his 8x/7x and hands like AhJx or so, that called because of their backdoor equity.

      River completes the straight, but I can hardly imagine him calling down with worse, so giving up looks reasonable to me.
