      Titan Poker 0.10/0.20, hand converted by the iPoker Converter at Talking-Poker


      Vilain is very tight passive and "yellowed" :D on his c-bet so I decided to float him.
      Being OOP, I had to donkbet the turn. Was this the right move?

      Button ($21.20)
      SB ($18.38)
      BB Hero ($20.15)
      UTG ($3.50)
      UTG+1 ($4.00)
      MP1($50.60)
      MP2 ($4.48)
      CO ($40.92)

      Preflop: Hero is in the BB with 4 :heart: 4 :spade:
      2 folds, MP1 raises to 0.80, 4 folds, Hero calls 0.60.

      Flop (1.70) J :club: 2 :heart: 5 :heart:
      Hero checks, MP1 bets 0.90, Hero calls 0.90.

      Turn (3.50) 9 :club:
      Hero bets 2.00, 1 fold

      Personally I like to c/r to this kind of flop against a tight passive because he might hit something on turn and c/r on flop is more convincing anyway. But nothing wrong to donkbet turn either I think.

      It is a good option too and it has the advantage of not depending on turn card as you said. Will keep it in mind :)

      I don't use that line as I think its hard to balance. I'd c/r the flop with my good made hands and draws, so I can also use it to bluff.

      I´m not sure I understood your recommendation. Ok for good made hands and draws, but should I consider 44 ( 3rd pair) a good made hand in this case?

      <<so I can also use it to bluff.>>

      no, that's why he says he would also check/raise bluff, since most of the time when you c/r you're not bluffing.

      c/raise
      or check fold

      It is fullring so i like check fold.
      Many people float to much and not
      aggressive enough.
      And you are out of position never float OOP!

      In my opinion Floating gains not much money and is more like a
      breakeven game to balance your setline.

      Shorthanded or with reads it is different.
