      SB: $10.25 (102.5 bb)
      BB: $9.60 (96 bb)
      MP: $3.91 (39.1 bb)
      CO: $15.66 (156.6 bb) 58/29, agg% F:43 T:33, donk_flop:25 fold_to_flop_cbet:20 hands:40
      Hero (BTN): $13.89 (138.9 bb)

      I found a tight fold here, mainly because deeper stacks. Villain has probably some straights, two pairs and sets in his range, but also some 89 and fd type of hands.

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with J J
      MP folds, CO raises to $0.20, Hero raises to $0.80, SB folds, BB calls $0.70, CO calls $0.60

      Flop: ($2.45) 5 3 7 (3 players)
      BB checks, CO checks, Hero bets $1.40, BB folds, CO calls $1.40

      Turn: ($5.25) 9 (2 players)
      CO bets $5.25, Hero folds

      $5.25 pot ($0.26 rake)
      Final Board: 5 3 7 9
      CO mucked and won $4.99 ($2.79 net)
      Hero mucked J J and lost (-$2.20 net)

      Hey Harrka,

      Hand looks good.

      Preflop value raise is fine.

      Cbet for value multiway is good. You might even be able to squeeze more value out of the CO.

      On the turn vs pot-sized-donk, villain's range is weighted towards strong made hands. More commonly with a draw or weak pair villain would check or donk small. Pot-donk suggests 2pair/set/straight.

      I would probably suggest cbetting bigger about 70/80% than 57% (1.4:2.45), since CO did open rise 2bb and I know we can't tell a lot about a player just from 40 hands, but I would assume he isn't that good -> playing 58/29 and or 2bb -> and would pay you extra $ with his draws etc. So yh imo you are not getting full value + I don't think you have to be scared about getting check raise bluffed from such a guy either.
