      0.02/0.05 No Limit Hold'em (8 Handed)
      Hand recorder for this hand: SideKick 1.1.508.2

      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q:club: , J:heart:
      Hero posts small blind ($0.02), BB posts big blind ($0.05), 4 folds, CO raises for $0.20, BU folds, Hero calls, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.45 - 9 bb) Q:spade: , 7:club: , 3:club: (2 Players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      Turn: ($0.45 - 9 bb) J:diamond: (2 Players)
      Hero bets $0.30, CO calls

      River: ($1.05 - 21 bb) 5:club: (2 Players)
      Hero bets $0.60, CO raises for $1.55, Hero calls


      CO was 28/18/4 over 374. Cbet - 67; AG% - 36; Stl - 37.

      I think my hand is good enough to defend. Too good to 3bet bluff.

      I expect him to cbet a lot on this flop so my plan was to c/call.

      Donk bet for value.

      Value betting again.
      His raise got me thinking:
      - He is probably cbetting FD/sets/OPs on the flop.
      - He is repping 55 mostly.
      Very strange line. With top 2 I opted to call in cases he has some weird Qx 2-pair.

      Preflop: Hmm very often I would just 3b this, not for value/bluff but to isolate the fish/weak reg and also because it's tough to play from the SB with a call when BB can either squeeze or call, making your life hard. Calling can't be too bad though.

      River: I guess he's representing a hand which beats you but you block flushes with Q and I don't think he has 55 too often. Maybe he has Q5/J5/75 which you beat and you do have a pretty strong hand so I think it's fine to call here.
