      Hello MattDenness,

      Rather CB the flop! We gain with that fold equity and also can always decide what we going to do on the turn. ;) But otherwise vs that kind of loose guy you could even threw a bigger raise on the river like $5.

      Best Regards.

      CB against such a loose opponent? I cant see how there is much fold eq against him?

      That's not only about fold equity but also securing us a free card where we can easily decide what to do on the turn. Cause with arriving or whatsoever draw arriving you wont have the implied odds to Call most likely. Why not take the initiative then?
