      PKR No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (6 handed) - PKR Converter Tool from http://www.flopturnriver.com

      CO ($10.67)
      Button ($21.82)
      SB ($19.40)
      BB ($9.37)
      Hero (UTG) ($10.30)
      MP ($5.59)

      SB aka Calling station had 78/16 and very passive

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with K, J
      Hero bets $0.30, 3 folds, SB calls $0.25, 1 fold

      Flop: ($0.70) 7, J, 5 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.35, Hero raises $1.35, SB calls $1

      Turn: ($3.40) 6 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $2.20, SB calls $2.20

      River: ($7.80) 10 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $6.45 (All-In), SB calls $6.45

      Total pot: $20.70


      Since his signature move is to call, should be I be concerned about his donk lead. To me this seems like a lame cooler, since he could be betting with a lot of draws here.

      Raise and focus on getting it in, or just play it slow and call him down?

      Hello,

      I don't usually mind raising the flop here unless he's very very passive.

      On the turn betting again is fine.

      As played, I can hardly see worse hands calling us on the river, so I'd check back.

      Best,
      Plamen

      You said it yourself. He could be betting with a lot of draws. But missed draws won't call an all in for >80% pot on the river :) I would play it the same way, and check back the river. You sit 2 seats left of him, so you have position on him most of the time, and he is a huge fish. Wait until you are very strong and then just barrel barrel barrel :) And obviously squeeze lighter than you would usually do... :) Thats probably the move that will give you the most money in the long run :)
