      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero has A:heart: Q:spade:

      UTG calls $0.02, UTG+1 calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.12, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, UTG calls $0.10, fold

      Flop: ($0.29, 2 players) A:spade: 3:heart: 9:heart:
      UTG bets $0.02, Hero raises to $0.22, UTG raises to $0.42, Hero raises to $1.04, UTG raises to $1.66, Hero raises to $3.84 and is all-in, UTG calls $2.18

      Turn: ($7.97, 2 players) 2:heart:

      River: ($7.97, 2 players) 8:club:

      Villain was the perfect example of a donk :f_biggrin: Just loved to bluff, play basically anything, etc. Was 86/38 over a little over 100 hands.

      So on the flop I figured I had essentially the nuts, against him. I decided to raise his min-bet, obviously, when he min-raised, I just decided to make a small 4bet to induce him to bluff again.

      Against a player like this, is this fine to do? Or should I just fold my top pair here? Personally I didn't think I could ever get away from this hand against that guy.

      Perhaps on a somewhat interesting note, here's what happened the next hand.

      Hello TinoLaan,

      If you assume he is a maniac then sure. But you must understand that you are 200bb deep there. ;) I would rather just Call the 3bet and reevaluate our action on further streets.

      Best Regards.
