      Hey veriz,

      Villain:
      49/21/70h fish.
      0.82 AF
      42% Cbet.

      Check/raise: We can get his whole stack by this. We can rep a lot of draws too. I also think that with the range he calls he donkbet with he will also Cbet himself.

      Donkbet: We protect our hand, it sucks when he checks and a 9 or club falls. On the other hand, if he checks behind he will probably not have called our donkbet.

      After comparing these options I chose the first one.

      Hello Farmarchist,

      As long he looks fishy I don't mind your play. Vs more reasonable opponents instead of Check/Raise you might want to donk in those spots which allows often times them to raise us and make it look like we have a draw/mediocre hand.

      Best Regards.

      Okay then I guess we also have to donk A :club: T :club: versus a reg?

      If we only donk sets vs good regs he will never raise our donkbet.

      And how should he know that? :) Doubt that so many guys are balancing on those stakes and that you have any regs on whom you have at least 10k hands. You can start thinking of balancing when you come to NL100+ cause there people start to think a bit more of that part.

      And also I am never saying that I am not donking with anything else, anything could happen, depends a lot on the reg.
