      Hi,


      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3 (Hero):
      $11.25
      CO:

      $14.10
      BB:
      $10.11
      MP2:

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with 6, 6.
      MP2 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, 2 folds, SB calls $0.25, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.7) J, 8, 6 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.60, Hero calls $0.60.

      SB checks, Hero bets $6.75(All-In), SB folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $9.1.

      Stats (VPIP/PFR/AF/Hands)
      SB - 20/14/1.6/1.2k, 13% donk bet (5/39)

      His donk on the flop seemed like a feeler bet to me, thought he was playing bet/fold. Decided not to raise, because didn't expect him to call with anything less than a flush (which he probably doesn't donk). Not sure if it was the right decision

      On the turn, obviously I hope he does have a flush :) Raised to set myself up for a shove on the river

      Was kind of surprised to see him call the turn and fold the river. Looks like he had something like AJ with A. And if this was the case, maybe he could call a raise on the flop...

      Do you think there was a better way to play the hand?

      Thanks
      Yuri

      I would raise the flop to protect against a naked heart and to set you up to get it all in before or on the river.

      Min raising on the turn looks super strong which is probably why he folded on the river. As played I would just call the turn bet because you got the nuts and then shove any river if he bets and just vbet if he checks.

      You would seriously basically min-raise the turn with quads? when you are in position and villain is probably like to lead a lot of rivers?

      My thoughts:
      1. By raising small I give him the odds to draw for a flush
      2. His AF is just 1.3, he's unlikely to bluff if he doesn't hit

      vs unknown I would probably play differently. But vs this player I think the line is good

      Hi,


      I'd raise the flop and get it in more often than not.

      As played on the turn it's fine to min-raise, it bloats the pot enough to get all-in on the river regardless and if we make too big a raise that kind of villain can actually fold draws a decent amount. I think you can push it to $4.3 or so and get the same result, but if you make a bet big enough that it's clearly a shove villain can get away. Against more loose passive players just raise to $5.5 or something, they will call anyway.


      Hope it helps.
