      SB: 47.8 BB (VPIP: 25.00, PFR: 20.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 21)
      BB: 253.94 BB (VPIP: 25.00, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 22)
      Hero (CO): 101.96 BB
      BTN: 70.5 BB (VPIP: 17.17, PFR: 10.10, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 102)

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has 6:heart: A:heart:

      Hero raises to 3 BB, fold, fold, BB calls 2 BB

      Flop: (6.5 BB, 2 players) 4:diamond: 9:heart: 4:heart:
      BB bets 3 BB, Hero calls 3 BB

      Turn: (12.5 BB, 2 players) 8:heart:
      BB bets 6 BB, Hero calls 6 BB

      River: (24.5 BB, 2 players) 3:club:
      BB bets 16 BB, Hero raises to 40 BB, BB calls 24 BB

      BB shows K:spade: 9:spade: (Two Pair, Nines and Fours) (Pre 42%, Flop 57%, Turn 9%)
      Hero shows 6:heart: A:heart: (Flush, Ace High) (Pre 58%, Flop 43%, Turn 91%)
      Hero wins 100.5 BB

      Should I fold flop? I dont like drawing on paired board, but it is heads up, and there are only 3 combos of 99, and 1 for 44. Raise turn?
      On river I was not sure if I should raise? Also I am not sure about my raise size. I wanted to get called vs worse flush, or 9x, TT+, but was not sure if it is more profitable to shove or raise as I did?

      Hi GingerKid,

      In this scenario we have villain donking small into us. I doubt he ever donks full houses so we are looking at pairs, some draws and even 4x.

      The turn gives him the chance to have a rare fullhouse of 88 but also top two with 98 and a lot of worse flush so we should just raise for value. I'm always looking to play for stacks here versus someone like him given the action. I think that being afraid of so few combos when he can have so many combos of worse will lose us a lot of value.

      I'd make it 19-20 BB and overbet shove the river. No 4x, worse FD and even overpairs fold often there from someone that seems fishy.
