      how dumb is it to do this here? im trying to find spots to open up and stop losing so much without showdowns. my thought process here is that his line doesn't make much sense. if he check raised then obviously he has it, but the donk ott didn't make much sense after him playing passive otf. so i think he doesn't really represent the 4 very well. is it stupid to do this? also, what size should our raise be?

      i guess given how draw heavy the board is it could be dumb. he's probably going in with any FD or SD so i didn't really think it through before. if the board is dry like 884 and i Cb out and get raised, can i 3bet that against a bad opponent? what about a TAG?

      or.. is this all totally pointless?

      Hello DrDunne,

      Raising turn doesn't achieve much vs unknown in those spots. Instead at the best I'd just consider calling whilst also having showdown value than raising. We can't really raise for value in those spots and nor I doubt that we are going to make better hands to fold.

      Well, what worse pays you being on dry board? Nor a loose guy wont pay you and nor you can't really go broke vs TAG. Cause we just don't know what's behind the TAG player, either he is aggressive or not.

      Best Regards.
