      Vill kinda unkn but fishy on small sample + stacksize .

      Fold -> weak vs his range
      Call -> Okay but OOP is hard without much FE
      Raise -> No FE :/

      So chose call... Fine?

      Now flop I'm going to ch/F. it goes ch/ch and so felt like I had to bet the turn to get rid of things like Ahi but yeah then I have to bet the river too right?

      Preflop folding and calling are both options I think. Bad thing though, that we dont have any info on Villain's postflop play.

      I agree with flop check/fold. Bet turn+river could be good against a reg, but he could be the station who just doesnt fold his - let's say - 44... We just dont know...

      I would usually lead these flops. It is very hard him to do anything unless he has there overpairs- some players would raise there Ax hands, although not too often and I can barrel a lot turn/ and if board runs out good then river cards. (diamonds, 8x,Jx, Kx, Ax, Q and T would often give me best hand and if I feel he floats light then every card below Tx)
      Also I think it is quite good board where to c/r, since he should then fold anything besides TT+ and 87

      betting turn and river is fine. On blank river I would often overbet, since he can´t really have there strong hands and I can represent anything starting with top pair and ending sets/two pairs

      On that scary river betting 2/3 pot should also do the job

      best regards,

      What about preflop? Call is best? :)

      Btw: Isn't it true that we don't rep anything by donking?

      Hello Farmarchist,

      Preflop: Assuming that he is a bad player then Calling is even fine here, we will very often get paid if we hit big time.
      Postflop: And I don't really see any reason to donk the flop vs a loose opponent, we wont even have fold equity vs Ace high there. And which I'd just follow the turn as well while we didn't improve to anything which means Check/Fold it.

      Best Regards.
