      I decide to bet the flop here to vale from pocket pairs. When the button raises me I decide to just flat to let him bluff off the rest of his stack on any turn card. Which he does.

      Upon review I dont think I played this hand very well. He could easily be semibluffing the flop with a FD and by just calling his raise and checking the turn, I'm letting him take a free card if he has a FD. Should I just shove it directly on the flop, or just call and donk shove the turn?

      Hello Meemawuk,

      That's most likely the problem with those stacks. And I'd even prefer to ship it on flop as well while he might even go broke there with Tx but any overcard may even kill the action.

      We will be often OOP and we have to fear the Check behind here.

      Best regards.
