      As the title says I have no hud on the ZOOM hands I'll post.
      Just mind reading.



      When a player donks into me small on a dry board I usually raise.
      On the turn he does the same thing and my plan is to keep raising his small bets and depending on the river I'll decide what to do.
      Obviously a gem of a card on the river, should I raise small, and what do I do if he shoves?
      Or do I just over-ship it?

      At this limit IMO I just shove every time, thinking I'm only beat by quads because 99 and JJ would of 3-bet pre.
      Also, we are deep so I thought I could bluff more.

      Hi

      I agree that villain is not likely to be super strong here. However, I think it's definitely possible that he somehow shows up with JX here and never folds on the river.

      Flop: I either call once or just give up immediately. I really don't like to make such plays with small pairs, hands with some SD value but little equity to improve.

      River: As played, just push, effective stack sizes left behind is <5$ so you cannot go any larger than that.

      He is a full stack player so why would he donk TP? shoudn't he think to ch/ca with his Jx?
      If he is weak he should fold most times being OOP.
      And if he calls then I could bluff turn as well, I guess if I bluff turn I have to bluff river as well because like you said I don;'t have very good SD value.

      Why would he donk TP? Cos he's a fish who doesn't know what he's doing? Don't overthink such spots, fishes don't know what they are doing and what they are trying to achieve with their plays.

      Anyway general rule of thumb is to avoid pulling off suicidal bluffs without reads on someone who we can assume to be a fish. And in general, fishes are likelier to be of the station type rather than of the weak-tight type.

      I don't think I posted anywhere in this hand that I assumed he was a fish though..

      Your right I shouldnt bluff when I don't know anything about a player but with him donking it seems super weak IMO

      Well im pretty sure regs dont take such lines. And this is nl5 .so i think my general read is that the average player is going to be pretty weak
