      MP+1: 106.08 BB (VPIP: 16.67, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 6)
      CO: 130.92 BB (VPIP: 12.50, PFR: 10.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 40)
      BTN: 116.4 BB (VPIP: 21.43, PFR: 21.43, 3Bet Preflop: 20.00, Hands: 15)
      SB: 126.08 BB (VPIP: 15.63, PFR: 10.42, 3Bet Preflop: 5.13, Hands: 96)
      BB: 100 BB (VPIP: 0.00, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 13)
      Hero (UTG): 107.72 BB
      UTG+1: 78.88 BB (VPIP: 33.33, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: -, Hands: 3)
      MP: 101.6 BB (VPIP: 21.05, PFR: 15.79, 3Bet Preflop: 22.22, Hands: 20)

      SB posts SB 0.4 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has A:club: A:diamond:

      Hero raises to 4 BB, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, SB calls 3.6 BB, fold

      Flop: (9 BB, 2 players) T:diamond: J:club: 8:club:
      SB checks, Hero bets 7 BB, SB calls 7 BB

      Turn: (23 BB, 2 players) 7:heart:
      SB bets 14 BB, Hero calls 14 BB

      I thought the villain could easily be bluffing or semi-bluffing in this spot, so I decided to call, to keep the pot small. Or should I raise here for protection? If he had better, do you think he would donk?

      River: (51 BB, 2 players) 6:diamond:
      SB bets 24 BB, Hero calls 24 BB

      Since the flush draw doesn't hit and villain only bets half of the pot, I decided to call.

      Hey mrbeast87,

      Your hand is pretty close to garbage by the turn.

      Usually at the micros if you are ever in a situation when you only beat bluffs it usually ends up being better to fold since the average opponent won't have a high enough bluff-frequency.

      I would just fold turn here and not feel too bad about it.
