      SB wins $16.82 (net +$8.87)

      cozacu lost $8.85
      Villain 68/31 af 4.2 AF. F 4.2 Turn 3.6 River 6.2 Donkbet 62% wtsd 28 324hands

      PF= value 3b

      Flop = He donks a lot so I raise mostly having the best hand here and see how he reacts

      Turn= another 4 won't change much often, I still don't put him on an A.

      River= Calling the turn, makes it pretty much a must call on river and I need to be right only like 30% to be +Ev.

      Question:

      1) Was I way too off here and I played to much HU lately... or my call down was at least half decent because of the aggro fish that I`m facing.

      Hi.

      Preflop: I like the 3b but you should make it at least 1.20$ IMO. You are losing value if you don't make it large.

      Flop: What purpose does this raise serve? Few worse hands call, probably no better hands fold.

      Turn: This is a tough spot - 4X now improves, and he could very well have AX. I'll fold now.

      River: This is definitely a fold - He bets 3 times and you only have 99 here. You have so many other stronger hands to bluff catch him here.

      I disagree with your reasoning for river play unless you are absolutely sure that when he bets the Turn he'll always fire the river. And if that's the case, you might want to rethink your turn strategy (fold instead of call unless you just think he has so much air here)

      Maybe you can call down with QQ/KK, perhaps even JJ. TT/99/88 are hands that are way too weak.

      Thanks.
