      SB checks, Hero bets $0.40, SB calls $0.40

      River: ($1.50, 2 players) T:heart:
      SB bets $1.50, Hero ?

      I think he would probably play his strong draw (if he's on an FD it's minimum FD + one overcard) more aggressive and probably his made hands would bet also somewhere before this 3s river. So I think his bet is weighted towards bluffs like 87, A4 so I opt to call.

      Hi GreenPiece,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I think that we can still bet this flop given 2 overs, low board. We can consider it a thin value and we don't mind if we pick the pot up.

      As played I think that river is mostly a fold. By his stack he is a fish and they usually play draws passively and without info I'm just folding the weak bluff catcher... for example he may bet as a bluff with a better hand like a 2 or 5 or even a 6

      Yeah, I kept it in mind (possibility of betting with 6 and so on as a bluff) and yes, I agree it's a fold. And what if we had 77? Than we could bet both flop & turn and if we faced this pot donk on the river, could we call?

      I would bet flop/turn with 77 for sure for value/protection vs potential fish.

      However, if we did bet 2 streets and then he donked on the draw it's still a fold in my book (without info).
