      I call my AJs on SB, EP limper is 73/9 over 20 hands and I want him to stay in pot, my hand can hit very strong and 3betting would just make me isolate myself with top range of MP

      I think I made a mistake here by not betting stronger...I lead because MP was last to act, and if both guys behind me check, he can just check it and see free card, I bet for value but I think it should have been bigger

      After I get raised by MP I give him credit for overpair since it was mway pot and he raised on me and a caller...I feel kinda sad that I didnt calll or use check/call line, since later on I saw he was getting it in with air and plays very loose and agressive...still he was unknown in this situation so I was inclined to fold without reads

      Hi Lavek,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Why are you donking so small and then folding with such a hand?

      How do you think a 1/3 pot bet looks here? Weak or strong? A lot of regs will just raise you here because you and the fish look really weak.

      I would donk 60c and go from there (to isolate the fish).

      yeah...I dont know what was happening in my head...I think I was afraid that he had overpairs and he will raise me anyway if I donk bigger...I have chosen the worst play, atleast I know for future situations now :)

      thanks

      You are welcome.

      The worst scenario to put yourself in is one where you have to guess a lot and one where you induce villain to do crazy things without a good plan (like here).
