      Flop: ($0.50) 8 9 Q (2 players)

      Final Board: 8 9 Q K K
      Hero mucked A A and lost (-$2.74 net)
      SB showed T K and won $5.33 ($2.59 net)

      21/12, AF: 0.5 (just 59 hands).

      Flop-turn is standard i guess. Because there are some busted draws at the river, and he might turn some weak pair into a bluff, i decided to call. But this overbet is more than suspicious, he might bluff with a smaller samplesize.

      Against such a passivish guy I'm never calling that river. It's slowplayed JT or some Kx that has improved, maybe to full-house. Never calling, we don't beat a thing. If he was more aggro..

      Hey Absolutism,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: The sample for aggression isn't huge but we can see he has some passive tendencies.

      However, these lines of ck/call, ck/call and then donk are usually either some block bets or value hands that don't want us checking back. However I think that Qx, JJ, TT would just ck/call again rather than donk so our decision on the river should be closer to a fold.

      You call his bet an overbet but he only bets 1/2 pot which to me does not look like a bluff at all.

      I misread this hand, in some other hand i got an overbet on the river with AA, i thought it is the same hand for some reason.
