      Villain is 84/3 in 38 hands.

      Pre flop I think it's standard.

      On the flop I make a big cbet to protect my hand and extract value from the calling.

      I would push any turn other than a :diamond: . When he donks the 4th :diamond: I think I'm behind. I have 10 outs (1:3.7) and his push gives me about 1:3 pot odds. Is the fold the correct play here?

      thx! :)

      Hey,

      No preflop is not standard, why do you raise this small? You want the fish for yourself and get value, why dont you raise bigger to 60cent? You think he is gonna say ''Holy cow, this guy raises 20cent more than the amount I would call, guess I will fold and not see a flop'' ?

      The Flop is fine and the Turn is a simple fold, props to him if he is bluffing but I do not think he is bluffing that often + your equity is pretty scarce since he pots it

      lol Ok. I usually raise 3bb + 1bb/limper in all cases but I'll pay more attention and raise bigger against the stations ;)

      Should I raise this big against him with hands like KJ, QJ, 88, 77 too or only with premium hands since he's problably not paying attention to game balance?

      thx!

      This guy plays for fun so only the hands you want to extract extra value. I don't mind 77s if you can let him fold postflop and beyond. If he doesn't then smaller is better since u are only going to continue playing if you have a set so having multiple people in can increase your profitability
