      hi,
      Villain is a loose player. As usual I always treat minraise as two limpers so I reraise.On the Flop, I cbet 1/2 pot due to dry broad. Should I go all in instead of cbet 1/2 pot. On the Turn, Villain donkbets. Should I call it? Thanks :s_confused:

      I would raise 3.5x pre to jam below potsized

      Betting $0.65 here doesn't achieve you much FEQ and you dont have the max Equity because you will most likely miss from F to Turn

      So as played I would just jam Flop and expect to be profitable continuosly

      Hi

      as played I would have folded to the bet on turn as you don't beat anything but a complete bluff, all you have is A high.

      You have position and the board is not scary how about checking on flop and re-evaluating on turn.

      What would you have done if villain checked raised you? if you are going to call a push or any turn card you might as well push there, you will have more fold equity. Your 1/2 pot size bet shows uncertainty and kind of commits you to the pot.

      ooh I did not see the low PF 3 bet to the min raise. Against loose opponent and has SS player even with a min raise i guess i would jam pre so i get the max fold equity and when / if he calls me I probably ahead of his calling range anyway.

      If Hero check behind, it may give free card to Villian. So I prefer cbet flop, to win the pot by villain fold. May be I should go all in on the flop. :s_biggrin:

      If Hero jam pre flop, I think Villian will fold. I think we may get more value if we reraise. :s_biggrin:

      I think villain folding is good, with AQo you never have a huge edge; in best case you will be almost 75% if he as Qxo, but against suited connectors or a a lot of hands you will be at 60/40.

      I think both jamming pre or raising small is fine. It really depends how villain is perceiving this

      Best regards,
