      Pre: Bet ~$3 4xBB+limper+OOP
      Flop: The pot would be $6,25 with your remaining stack of $7. So if you cbet, it would be a push.

      So the question is what range he will l/c with. I think mostly small PP and SC's. Something like:
      99-44, 98s, 87s, 76s, 65s?

      His WTS is pretty high so he will not fold his pocket pairs and probably also wont fold his SC that made a FD or combo draw.

      So how do we continue from here? :f_p:

      As played:
      Turn: It is not a donk bet :) Easy call for pot odds. Often those small bets are draws but mostly by fish and not such a tight guy.

      River: I would c/c river with TPTK. He would fold all weak/trash hands but might try to bluff you out of the pot with a low pair.

      Yes i would raise more preflop because OOPness and you get more money and this is easy to play

      As pl. cBet size just screams for a cheapfloat from his side, you c/f AK,AQ,TT,99,88,KQ,AT there which represents the majority of your PFR range

      As played c-c turn on this minbet and possibly I jam the river
