      What do you think about my raise on the flop? I don't understand though why I made it that big. Probably should have at least been smaller.

      Hello Avatars91,

      If you are raising then you have to do it smaller, it will have the same fold equity anyways. Another possibility would be to just to Call but now again is he capable of 2barreling? Then it's rather better to gain the fold equity right away if he is donking a lot. We still have backdoor FD and also GS right now.

      Best Regards.

      Is a call possible only because his donk is so small? I mean, even if we know that he does not 2nd barrel a lot can we call a big bet on the flop?

      Float is possible also that we have some backdoors and he may easily give up on the turn and if he Checks it's very often a sign that he doesn't have a hand since if had the Ace he would Bet himself to protect.
