      Prima, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      SB: $109.35 (218.7 bb)
      Hero (BB): $50 (100 bb)
      UTG: $39.02 (78 bb)
      MP: $94.09 (188.2 bb)
      CO: $51.80 (103.6 bb)
      BTN: $56.20 (112.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 6:club: 7:club:
      UTG raises to $1, MP folds, CO calls $1, BTN folds, SB calls $0.75, Hero calls $0.50

      Flop: ($4) J:club: 9:heart: A:club: (4 players)
      SB bets $2.50, Hero calls $2.50, UTG raises to $8.25, 2 folds, Hero calls $5.75

      Turn: ($23) T:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets $11.50, Hero raises to $40.75 and is all-in,

      No stats, but UTG was a fish. (Saw him limping and he has a smaller stack)

      I think preflop is standart.

      On the flop, i decided to call the donk bet. After the squeeze from the fish, i don`t think that he will semi-bluff here with a FD often, so i decided to call, even OOP, because of the good price and the good implied odds vs. his strong range? I don`t think that he will fold 2 pairs or set if the turn is a spade?

      Hey Achilles,

      I think you played it fine. Unless you are up against what is now a royal flush you should win imo plus a set and 2pair are unlikely to told for this price. Keep in mind your EV here won't be huge, it's not the same as getting it in with the nuts :) but it's a +EV play nonetheless.

      Thoughts on donking turn Manu? I feel villain is going to chk back a good amount but will not fold his good hand vs a db.

      I rarely take the check/call and donk turn line but in this case, since villain is also not full stacked it definitely makes sense to just value bet turn and shove good rivers.
