      This hand is for my HW on the NL Course.
      Considering the VPIP and the PFR plus some hands he played and went to showdown I didn't really think he had a hand to beat me, he was raising a lot to cbets in position.

      Well, first of all, you should fill up you stacl always to 100BB. You can loose some value by not playing with the full stack.
      In this example you could win more 11,5BB.

      About the hand, Usualy it should be fold on the pre-flop.
      As you said, you called his 3bet because of the BU, but you still have another palyer on the hand.

      As played, and against this villian, on the flop it was ok.

      I usually fill my stack at 85BB, but i'll take that into consideration. I didn't post the stats for the other player, but his stats were

      VPIP: 80, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 1.0, Hands: 15

      Ok. Than the other player is a fish to.

      Why do you fill up to 83,5BB? any reason?

      About the flop, Why did you donk? Were you not sure that the PF agressor would CBET?

      I don't really know why I fill up at 85BB, just have been doing since ever. About the donk, I was pretty sure he wouldn't bet he played a few hands like this before and since I had 2 opponents I did for a lil protection.

      Than I think the donk was OK, but it could be a little higher. Somethin around 0,36$

      But I am a beginner also, so let's wait for the more experienced players to evaluate:)

      Hello tieppofer,

      Add to full stack if you playing BSS. Why would you add to 85bb? Try to follow the strategy you playing not the way you feel being the best. :)

      But about the play Bet the flop bigger and if you assume the guy is a maniac and raises every CB then sure we can go broke there. But as you may understand he also has shown strength by raising into multiway pot and also preflop 3bet. Vs unknown I'd rather be inclined to fold the hand.

      Best Regards.

      You didn't understand veriz ;p what I said is I used to fill up my stack when I had less than 85bb.

      Yeah, I didn't have many hands on either one, but the way the guy was playing was really weird, I wouldn't call here normally

      Cheers.
