      PokerStars - $0.10 NL (6 max) ZOOM - Holdem - 6 players

      No reads on opponent

      BTN: $8.50
      SB: $17.12
      Hero (BB): $10.78
      UTG: $28.75
      MP: $10.00
      CO: $10.00

      SB posts SB $0.05, Hero posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has 8:diamond: Q:heart:

      fold, fold, fold, BTN calls $0.10, fold, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.25, 2 players) 6:heart: 5:heart: 7:club:
      Hero bets $0.15, BTN calls $0.15

      Turn: ($0.55, 2 players) 3:club:
      Hero bets $0.40, BTN calls $0.40

      River: ($1.35, 2 players) Q:club:
      Hero bets $0.70, BTN calls $0.70

      Donk flop as this wet board isn't suitable for opponent to continue with Ax, Kx & the like, mayhap even 33, 22 fold here.
      Bet turn as he could call with smth like A :heart: x, K :heart: x and now folds.
      Bet river as my suddenly pair turned so now it's a value bet.

      Hi.

      I would have potted the Flop and Turn. On the river you should not bet anymore when the board is so coordinated - You'll often run into a straight. Check and hope he shows down or bluffs with a busted flush draw.

      Thanks.

      Won't he raise monster somewhere before river? My intention was to gather from smth like 88-JJ if he limps them, 87, 97, A7 & the like. Or c\f by any means better?

      That's really optimistic when the backdoor flush hits (which either kills your action or improves his hand).

      I guess it's not as bad since
      1. Board is low, people play more mid cards than low cards
      2. The coordinating card is on the low end
      E.g. 976T is much worse than 6782 cos in the first case 78 wouldn't raise Flop but on the second case 78 might raise flop with top two.

      Still i think its more of a check. The value is really thin here.
