      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has A:club: T:club:

      UTG bets $0.60, Hero calls $0.60

      Turn: ($2.15, 2 players) 5:heart:
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      River: ($2.15, 2 players) Q:spade:
      UTG bets $1.20, Hero raises to $2.50, fold

      Hero shows A:club: T:club: (One Pair, Queens)
      Hero wins $4.25

      The donk on the flop looked to me like he had a mid pair like 66-P10 esp with the limp/call pre-flop but was not sure.....Is calling this flop best option? or shall I consider raising here....It does rep AQ/KQ nicely I would say.

      After check on turn I thought for sure he had med pair and was not strong....guess if he had set he would protect it...

      On river I find it strange that he bets...he is not really repping a Q or full house if you see the action before so I thought I could rep a KQ/AQ with a small raise that begs to be called as I think it is very hard to call with med pocket pair ...

      Was it obvious that I had busted draw ? Was it a good bluff? should I have raised more on river? raised flop? bet turn as soon as I am pretty sure that he is weak ?

      Hey Locito,

      Flatting flop is good. Villain is unlikely to be pure-bluffing, and there is no guarantee he will fold anything he donk-bets with.

      Same on turn, no guarantee you are getting any folds here. Your A-high is good vs any draws. Checking back is good.

      River is villain dependent. Standard option is to fold. Some of the hands you fold out you beat anyway. You don't represent a good Qx either. Raise will be profitable against some opponents, but unless you have specific reads I would stick to folding in this spot.
