      Hero (Button) ($27.63)
      SB ($8.05)
      BB ($25.70)
      UTG ($25.90)
      MP ($8.04)
      CO ($25)

      Preflop: Hero is Button with A, J
      UTG calls $0.25, 2 folds, Hero bets $1.10, 2 folds, UTG calls $0.85

      Flop: ($2.55) 5, Q, 9 (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $1.60, UTG calls $1.60

      Turn: ($5.75) Q (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $4, UTG calls $4

      River: ($13.75) 6 (2 players)
      UTG bets $7, Hero folds

      Total pot: $13.75 | Rake: $0.62

      Villain was unknown.
      The cbet by default, on the turn I still see lots of weaker hands in his range that I can make fold with a large 2nd barrel. My gameplan is to 3rd barrel as well on a river like the 6s, but when he donks, the game is over.
      Do you agree with my line or any better suggestions?

      Hi Jazzy,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: It's a pretty coordinated board and our equity is not the greatest so I would just cbet once and give up.

      I really don't think that the turn is a great card to bluff on especially with no equity in the pot. Most pairs will hardly ever fold now and he does have a fair bit of Qx in his range.

      So just check back and give up vs unknown.
