      Reraise on the turn. With this hand on this board you want to get all-in as fast as possible.

      On the river there is a great possibilty that he has hitted a full-house or quads. His call preflop could be setmining and his raises after the flop indicated he has hit something. So an fold is my option.

      And now wait for the judge!! :f_biggrin:

      I was trying to be a little creative on the turn and river. :D

      Don't be creative on the micros and play straight forward ABC-poker. Otherwise it will only cost you lots of money and frustration. :s_biggrin: Most players don't understand your creativity. :D :D

      Hello maheepsangari,

      Nah, I don't like your play at all here. How do you plan to extract value on the river being OOP? Either I would donk myself on the turn or if I'd play such a play then Check/Raise!

      As played
      Why do you donk? What do you expect to be ahead there after he is even shipping on paired board?

      Best Regards.
