      PokerStars - $0.05 NL (6 max) ZOOM - Holdem - 6 players

      BTN: $2.79
      SB: $5.00
      Hero (BB): $5.00
      UTG: $5.14
      MP: $4.37
      CO: $5.19

      SB posts SB $0.02, Hero posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero has K:club: 4:club:

      fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to $0.10, fold, Hero calls $0.05

      His stack and minraise leads to me to the thought that he's a fish. I can't 3bet neither for value nor for bluff but I think on certain boards I can take something from him or rely on free card if it's a draw.

      Flop: ($0.22, 2 players) 7:club: 6:spade: 6:club:
      Hero bets $0.15, BTN calls $0.15

      Donk here as a semibluff to fold better kings and random trash like JTo with its equity share.

      Turn: ($0.52, 2 players) 2:diamond:
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.25, Hero calls $0.25

      Playing by odds & outs from now on considering some implieds though the board is paired.

      River: ($1.02, 2 players) 5:spade:
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.50, fold

      BTN wins $0.98

      Preflop I prefer folding. We should not be looking forward to play OOP with K4s even against fishes.

      As played, I don't mind donking here on the flop.

      On the turn I would rather bet myself here, considering your flop play. I think we can still have some fold equity plus some equity as well, if we get called.

      On the river your play is good.
