      Hi,

      On turn, the Villain Dbet less than 1/2 pot size, it shows weakness to me. Because, I think he should Dbet bigger if he has Ax hand to protect his hand against FD/SD. Besides, he may Dbet as block bet to chase the FD/SD.However, I felt way ahead/way behind. So, I called it and see his action on Turn. Unluckily, he second barrel put me all in and draw is completed. Any Ax ,Flush and Straight have me beat. I also dont know why I made the idiot call :f_p: . Luckily, he is bluffing. Nice bluff! Unfortunate for him because I am a calling station. :f_p:
      Should I 3bet him on Flop? Thanks

      Hey ;)
      deffinetely 3bet flop, i he reraises then fold, if he calls and then checks turn, i think u can jam. if he calls a 3bet on the flop, then donk bets or bets small on the turn, i think this kinda bet shows weakness, so u should jam

      Hey JHTAN,

      How often do you expect him to bluff this flop? The problem is when villain donks here you will never know where you stand therefore I just give up the hand straight away on the flop unless you get reads on how he plays Ax/draws/bluffs.

      I think we both agree on how good your turn call was. :f_p:

      As for a raise on the flop, with your stack size you need to push if you want to raise the dbet and what do you think that will achieve?

      Regards,
