A6o on the BTN

PartyGaming - 7000/14000 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players

Late game, no read. Should I have attacked these blocking bets ? What is your line in such situation

Hero (BTN): 47.62 BB
SB: 22.49 BB
BB: 48.14 BB
UTG: 14.95 BB
CO: 43.87 BB

5 players post ante of 0.12 BB, SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

Pre Flop: (pot: 2.11 BB) Hero has A 6

fold, fold, Hero raises to 3 BB, fold, BB calls 2 BB

Flop: (7.11 BB, 2 players) T 6 5
BB bets 1 BB, Hero calls 1 BB

Turn: (9.11 BB, 2 players) 7
BB bets 1 BB, Hero calls 1 BB

River: (11.11 BB, 2 players) 9
BB bets 1 BB, Hero ?

Re: A6o on the BTN

Whenever people start using tiny bet sizing my alarm bells go off, definitely feels like V is trying to induce us to bet. Pretty easy call down for the prize we are getting, but never expecting to win the hand at showdown.

Re: A6o on the BTN

If you NEVER expect to win then you should obviously fold.

Re: A6o on the BTN

Obviously your 6 is good enough sometimes, so given pot odds you just call down. I just don’t think you ever want to raise in that spot. OP seems to think the tiny bets are blocker bets, where I think they are sneaky value bets trying to induce a raise. Might be completely wrong, but in my experience reasonably competent V only uses tiny sizing to induce.

Re: A6o on the BTN

In my experience with low stakes, these oop min donk bets on multiple streets are incredibly weak. However, most bad players that do this will still call a small raise, sometimes a large raise will get them to fold.

I would call in this spot. If nothing else, you get a cheap showdown and info on what your opponent is doing this with.

I actually had a similar hand recently. I will post it here if you don't mind.

IT's a Freeroll.

Re: A6o on the BTN

I tend to view these mindonks as weak-ish value, draws looking for cheap cards or the supernuts trying to induce. The runout of the board is pretty bad as all the draws get there, but it's definitely not inconceivable for V to take this line with a worse 6 or even a 5 if he's really just clicking buttons. With our hand it's a pretty clear calldown. Definitely take a note on what he had.

Re: A6o on the BTN

Just call...OTR as well. Don't "attack" this. At this board with this made hand. This is not "like check". This is stronger...I said that, because some coaches say "see this as check". But this is not the truth. Will be, if the player do that always. Or when he don't have a strong hand. One coach say "this is a "strong" check" . Sounds dumb, but no better explanation. This is a "strong check". Don't attack this...With such a hand.
