      Poker Stars, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      utg is 27/12 passive recreational player, SB is a nit.

      Hero (BB): $12.72 (127.2 bb)
      UTG: $11.25 (112.5 bb)
      MP: $10 (100 bb)
      CO: $10 (100 bb)
      BTN: $6.19 (61.9 bb)
      SB: $11.31 (113.1 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K A
      UTG raises to $0.40, 3 folds, SB calls $0.35, Hero calls $0.30

      Flop: ($1.20) A K 8 (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.10, UTG calls $1.10, SB folds

      Turn: ($3.40) Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.10, UTG calls $2.10

      River: ($7.60) T (2 players)
      Hero bets $4.40, UTG calls $4.40

      I was going for bet/fold on turn, and even bet/fold on river.

      I think you should bet a bit less on turn, as all the obv. draws got there. If villain really is passive and recreational player, I don't see any value in river bet as even AJ got there. There's definitely no value on betting, so ch/f.

      Hey Gavinonymous,

      Preflop is fine.

      Flop donk-bet with top 2 is great if yout hink UTG is a fish.

      Turn is a really bad card. I'd play bet/fold.

      River is totally overplayed. There is a chance you can extract $1.10 worth of value from a worse 2pair, but betting $4.40 is going to isolate you vs better hands way too often on this 4-to-straight board with a possible flush.
