      SB: 67/16 51h

      UTG:


      notes:
      folds to donkbets well - foldded on KQx mono

      open UTG w 65s when fish was in BB, on 20 vpip table, cbh Q9xss without draw, cbh K, cbh 4

      I think his equity could be good so I did not raise and did not call. He is not that agro, his range can have many draws and Jx.

      But this is also posible to donk bet - he often folds and rarely raises (noticed in review only). I have backdoor FD and str draw, so this could be good, because its cheaper coparing to bluffrase or float. What do you think?

      Hi.

      Preflop: I don't like the fact that he raises to 4bb but he opens 17% from UTG and we have KQs so I think this is barely defensible.

      Flop: I think folding is a little too weak. Donking could be an option but I wonder if you are balanced here - Would you lead some top pairs sometimes? If not I much prefer checking with my entire range and you can either c/r or c/c, both are acceptable since you have 2 overs and backdoor straight+flush draws.

      Thanks.

      No I would not as long as he folds to donkbets so much. At the same time - do I need a balance here? He might not notice this I think.
