      did he bet 3.3$ and left 0.19$ in his stack ? ;\

      Why not raise it to make it all-in on the flop ?

      I usually insta-mark people who bet like this even if I don't see their cards.

      I would call this crazy-bet , but interesting question comes up.

      Let's say, you call and you see AA/TT/AK/KK/ and you lose. would that affect your future decisions in such spots ?

      I'd like to hear judge opinion as well ; ) )

      Didn't realise at the time that he hadn't gone all in which is why I didn't RR him on the flop.

      Definitely got him marked now! No idea what he was trying to do but it's happened to me a few times and I'll usually fold TPTK if villain is unknown but as his stack was fairly small I decided to experiment.

      Not sure whether it's worth getting involved in these with TPTK against unknown. Would you have called sneakyhand?

      Interesting spot. I would have put him on a set and folded in this spot. Calling a raise that is 5.5 times bigger than the pot is just not profitable with TPTK.

      If you are sure that he is raising with a medium pair and other trash hands then you can consider to call.

      I think you're right musematte, would usually put him on a set but why donk bet $3.30 with a set? I've noticed a lot of people at nl2/5 donking with middle pairs. Either way, I think there's better spots than this to get it in.

      Hello hooley01,

      Maybe just a misclick? :D But overall vs not a even a full stack I'd also go broke here. His play just doesn't make sense.

      Best Regards.
