      River: ($0.52 - 26 bb) 4:heart: (2 Players)
      Hero bets $0.26, CO calls


      Preflop: CO was isolating a fish. Decided to call (let the fish into the pot, no reason to 3bet).

      Flop: Totally missed, c/f.
      Turn: I expected CO to have an A. Was afraid of better ace and for some reason I thought this is a good reason to c/c :D In retrospect, I may have donked as I could have gotten a call from a fish and I don't want to give free cards on this flop.
      River: As played, I thought I should donk, no clear reason (was afraid he may not bet / bet big). The idea was to block bet or something likethat.

      How should I play this hand? (MP2 - loose caller, CO - average)

      Pre flop - seems fine I would call to let the fish in too.

      Flop - ok

      Turn - I prefer betting myself for value into the fish and I don't expect Co to be betting too often though he should when everybody checks to him twice

      River - as played I prefer a check call. I think most of his hands that missed would bluff again here and Ax would bet too. And ifhe has middle pair he would check back and may not call a bet if we donk.

      Hi cutegoldfish

      Thanks for all the evaluations.

      How would you play the river if:
      Turn - donk into the fish, fish folds, CO calls?

      Thanks again for all the help!

      If you donk the turn and Co calls he usually has Ax or some weak hand like 2nd pair or draw. And all these hands are likely to check back on the river if you check to him and he only bets his completed hands and 2p or better so I'll bet myself for value on the river. Sometimes he calls 2nd or 3rd pair and of course he's calling Ax
