      Villain stats are 42/4.5/5 with a W$ at SD of 60%

      When he made the donkbet on the flop,i thought he was on the FD trying to get a cheap turn,or maybe a pocket pair like 88-TT to "test me",see if i hit the queen.

      Does he make that play with aces/kings here?I think its a possibility,since his PFR is so low(4.5),and i didnt see he reraise any hand.

      Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (3 handed)

      BB ($25)
      Hero ($44.10)
      SB ($14.80)

      Preflop: Hero is Button with Qs, Js.
      Hero raises to $1, SB calls $0.90, 1 fold.

      Flop: ($2.25) Qh, 7h, 2c (2 players)
      SB bets $1, Hero raises to $2.5, SB calls $1.50.

      Turn: ($7.25) 4d (2 players)
      SB bets $11.30 (All-In), Hero calls $11.30.

      River: ($29.85) 6c (2 players, 1 all-in)

      Final Pot: $29.85

      This is very read dependent; If you have seen him do this with top pair and no kicker you can call

      I reraise more on the flop smthing like 4.5$;

      as played i would fold and wait for a better spot to put my money in. I think you see here 77/22/KQ/AQ or some weird two pair too often to make it profitable

      Exactly. I would play this hand like kexix. Raise more on the flop if you put him on a flushdraw (~4.50) and fold to that big turn bet. What do you beat? A flushdraw, a Q with a weak kicker (except from 7,2 and 4) and a bluff. There are many more hands that beat you. So just fold and wait for a better spot.

      Yeah,after looking at this hand on PT i tought "wtf was i thinking?"

      But this hand happened when i still didnt had PT,and i didnt have his stats or anything.

      I called,and for my amusement he fliped K7o (WTF?) :baby:

      But if this happened now,with PT and PAHUD,i think its a crystal clear FOLD!

      And yeah,the flop raise was veeeeery weak!

      Hoping to participate more on the forum! :)
