      PokerStars - $0.05 NL (6 max) ZOOM - Holdem - 6 players

      Opponents unknown

      BTN: $6.47
      SB: $8.50
      Hero (BB): $5.39
      UTG: $1.99
      MP: $6.39
      CO: $11.24

      SB posts SB $0.02, Hero posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero has 6:spade: 6:heart:

      fold, MP raises to $0.15, CO calls $0.15, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.47, 3 players) 4:spade: A:spade: A:diamond:
      Hero checks, MP checks, CO bets $0.26, fold, fold

      I decided not to donk because if I have a monster, I'm likely to c\r, and the opponents can easily have better PP or even Ax and call so without a position I will be on a dark side here... When PF-aggressor checks it may be a good spot for CO to bluff bet with smth like connectors or 22-55 but as well it may be a value bet with AT+, stronger PPs and it's more likely I think than a bluff. And even if it's actually a bluff my hand doesn't play well vs 6 outs at least OOP. So I decided to fold.

      CO wins $0.45

      Hey GreenPiece,

      I agree with your comments.

      You definitely want to call preflop, but check/folding the flop is fine. Even if you do currently have the best hand, your opponents will have a lot of outs vs you along with position.
