      I had quite aggressive image (both pre-flop and after flop) at this table and villain was pretty loose. I assumed he was bluffing and trying to buy the pot, but I guess I should have made a move on the flop by either re-raising him or giving it up. What do you think?

      All feedback is highly appreciated

      IMo you should have RR his donk lead and fold it if he calls on later streets.

      Most likely holdings are a 7 in a A7, or suited connector type of hand. Calling this this situation is never good. Just make a note that you can play against him like this if you do have trip kings.

      Hello foolboydesire,

      I guess often times I'd just fold it to the pot size bet unless I have a good reason. And yes, I guess I'd rather turn my hand into bluff and raise it on flop and fold to any further actions if I have some kind of reads on him. As played I'd just fold it on turn, otherwise don't really see the point to raise it on river, easy fold.

      Best regards.
