      Hero bets $1.05 (AI), BTN calls $0.89 (AI)

      VPIP/PFR 16/11 #38 hands.

      Raise on the flop because BB could easily donk with flusdraw and his donk bet doesn't look strong. Though, BU call kinda surprises me. However don't see him calling pre-flop with A5, so it can be 55/88 that beat me and 99+ which will pay for me, oh and of course flushdraw. So flop was OK for me, but need advices about actions on the turn and river. :) Thanks.

      Hello koosMaras,

      Actually I like the raise on flop for the given reason that we protect from draws and often times when they do have a pair here or even high PP they are willing to Call. Otherwise playing for stacks, they are capable of Calling you down on those limits very light, even with just TP.

      Best regards.

      I think that opponent defended his blind with high suited cards (1-2 gap), hit his flush draw, donk bet on flop and when you raised him he got illusionary odds with implied odds, then he hit his Q on turn and now he got his top pair and thinks that he is ready to play all in. So i would like to guess that he had QT Q9 or QJ. koosMaras could you tell what he had, i'm just curious.
