      First one see if you can guess what I had

      CO: $40 (20 bb)
      BTN: $94.35 (47.2 bb)
      SB: $22.70 (11.4 bb)
      BB: $80 (40 bb)
      UTG+2: $193.55 (96.8 bb)
      Hero (MP1): $40 (20 bb)
      MP2: $434.45 (217.2 bb)
      MP3: $68.35 (34.2 bb)

      Pre-Flop: Hero is MP1 with 9
      CO posts BB OOP, UTG+2 folds, Hero raises to $8, 3 folds, BTN calls $8, SB calls $7, BB folds

      Flop: ($28) 9 (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, BTN bets $2, SB calls $2, Hero calls $2

      Turn: ($34) 2 (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $2, BTN raises to $4, SB calls $4, Hero raises to $8, BTN calls $4, SB calls $4

      River: ($58) T (3 players)
      SB bets $4.70 and is all-in, Hero raises to $22 and is all-in, BTN calls $22

      Results (listed below in white, highlight to see): $106.70 pot ($3.00 rake)
      BTN mucked 5s 5d (two pairs, Nines and Fives) and lost (-$40 net)
      SB mucked Jc Qh (a straight, Eight to Queen) and lost (-$22.70 net)
      Hero showed 9d 9c (four of a kind, Nines) and won $103.70 ($63.70 net)

      I donked out on the turn to try and get a stronger player to reraise but it didnt work, so the river i was not messing around.

      This one was an interesting spot, I will share with you what I know about villan and why I did what I did.
      Villan is a weak player limping most pots or calling raises, I have a good 1.5k hands on him and know his play reasonably well

      BTN: $72 (36 bb)
      SB: $40 (20 bb)
      BB: $826.10 (413.1 bb)
      MP1: $130.60 (65.3 bb)
      MP2: $237.15 (118.6 bb)
      Hero (MP3): $46 (23 bb)
      CO: $52.55 (26.3 bb)

      Pre-Flop: Hero is MP3 with A:diamond: K:spade:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $8, 3 folds, BB calls $6

      Flop: ($17) 8:heart: T:heart: J:spade: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($17) 8:club: (2 players)
      BB bets $10, Hero raises to $38 and is all-in, BB folds

      $37 pot ($1.85 rake)

      Now this player floats alot and what I would call a simple player. The flop is not the best for my hand and does hit his range quite often so I elect to check/fold this to him on the flop.
      The turn is a great card to bluff, after he bet I suspected he had a pair and was now betting for value, so I spring into action I think the reraise is good because if he does have one pair then this card along with the straight draw makes a call quite hard.

      He posted in the chat that he had AT so I was way behind but a correct read

      Hi lennon,

      On the Turn with Quads, I would have donked $8 or $10~

      Moving to your next hand:
      The turn is a great card to bluff,
      - Why? IMO it doesn't really change much

      Don't you play with statistics? I think it is rather tricky on the Turn and you might need stats for AFq/AF/Donkbet % since he c/c-donkbet Turn
