      Hello Avatars91,

      Nah, I am not a huge fan of raising here vs such a play. He is rarely even making any pair nor draws to fold. Definitely you have watched too many videos. :D It's not wrong but it has to be done against more reasonable opponents.

      Best Regards.

      So in order to pull this off what should I know about my opponent stats-wise? E.i. what stats should I be looking at in these situations?

      In this spot I wouldn't base much on the stats since the opponent has only 100 hands. But usually WTSD, donk bet and obviously the image of him on the table which is the most important.
