[NL2-NL10] Hand 2/?? - Most Money Lost Hands

      Ok my second ever posted hand, read my quick life story in hand 1 :) , with this hand, while reviewing I felt I probably should have raise flop about $2.2 ? if thats the case should I call a shove? i think i would have to. I think I took a more passive line and was trying to "trap" with top pair !!

      Also this hand poses a question regarding the postflop pokerstartegy chart, under Drawyboard or 2 opponents, it say bet/fold top pair, does that mean I should have just folded to the donk bet ? alot of donk bets turn out to be weak and followed by a fold or a call on the draw, I usually would donk bet when holding a decent hand like a set to get players to raise me !

      I think I may have asked too many questions but any help is appreciated :)

      Hi Shyko,

      no I would shove directly on the Flop for max value & protection. I feel that people who lead out are not as strong as check/raisers in this spot

      Now about the question regarding ''bet/fold'', we assume the players check to you. Now when you get lead into and you still have a legit hand, I would just raise him unless I know his leading range is stronger than my hand

      Best regards,
