      Hi Ramadas,

      PReflop: Villain is not overly loose so far so we can even fold this preflop

      Postflop: Why are we donking into the PFR here? You have bottom two pair on a super wet board. Our hand is rarely strong enough to play for stacks or a big pot and if we get raised we will hate life.

      Also, why are we underbetting turn and river?

      Since we underbet and it may look weak we may have induced bluffs so it's hard to fold but I doubt many guys at these limits will bluff you. I much more prefer to bet bigger and avoid any inducing bets and then fold to a raise.

      Flop:
      I am trying to protect 2 pairs against fourth club if he has one club only.

      Turn and River: It should be half pot size should be, I don't have 33% pot size button.... :D Such pot size to control size of the pot, cause board is very wet and I am sure I cannot push him off as he may be drawing + one pair.

      You said you are betting for value and protection and such small bets don't do much for either option.

      I'd bet at least 2/3 if we play it like this and bet/fold.
