      Hello nefarious26,

      You have to raise the flop bigger, right now you ain't even forcing him to make mistakes. If you would have made a solid raise you could also have made nice Bet on the turn for value and protection.

      Also you have to keep in mind that in those spots usually the Bet on the turn is for free showdown & protection from draws, we ain't going to pick that thin value on the river. Rather don't be result oriented. Way too thin spot while even a fish might fold on such a river while the pot is pretty big (get value earlier).

      Best Regards.

      Hi Veriz

      its not results orientated when he donks the flop im mostly putting him a hand that hits a pair, i feel this player would check call with draws as he was a standard passive player

      i do now agree that i can raise bigger on the flop but my thinking was he has 3 outs so im not that worried about protection and just wanted to keep him in

      the turn is a blank and i can bet bigger here too?

      at the time i felt i could go for thin value bet and get 10-15$ but didnt pull the trigger

      I'd Bet on most of the turn cards bigger unless it's a FD card, such a guy will very often have many FDs which are donking like that. Try also to take notes with what he played like that.
