      CO bets $0.75, Hero raises to $2.50, fold

      Hero wins $2.75

      villain is 15/13

      Brilliant or just really really stupidly risky? :P

      On the flop his donkbet didn't make sense to me. If he had AK or KQ preflop he should have raised 2/3 to build the pot and protect his hand from the FD. Even if he had a monster checkraising would have been better, since as the pfr I would most likely have made a cbet.

      I think his raise was either a wierd steal attempt or a blockbet to keep his FD viable. So I reraised the pot and he folded. But afterwards it occurred to me this might have been veeeery risky :D

      Hello Jehryn,

      If we are 3betting in those spots which of course is fine I would have played the same way postflop, although I'd raise it to like $2. His play doesn't make sense cause I don't think the guy is donking with Kx.

      Best Regards.
