      Flop: Regarding the flop raise. I would say it depends here. If you know he's capable of folding any pair ( I would assume he's calling all his worse draws) if he's not then I would be more inclined to call here and just play according to our odds.

      Nevertheless, raise/broke here will still show a profit for sure IMO. I just think its sometimes less hassle and variance against loose players who wont fold. We can see both turn and river for a fantastic price and since we are in position we can keep the pot small and reduce variance if we miss. And if we hit then will can still control the size of the pot and should have a hard time getting such a loose opponent all in by the river or at least make a large value bet.

      Turn and river pretty standard, well played, NH :f_thumbsup:

      Hello Imimba1,

      I'd most likely still 3bet it bigger preflop vs such a min-raise and having few other guys in the pot. But otherwise seems to be fine, might raise the flop a bit bigger but it ain't a huge difference vs loose guy.

      Best Regards.

      Flop: call or raise is the better play?

      After SB minrais/calling preflop, and now donking, I don't think we have fold equity. Therefore calling is better, isn't it?

      This type of players usually bet so small with small pairs or draws, so like going all-in on turn could give you some FE.

      He'd bet 3/4 of pot or sth. like that, if he had a hand.

      As I said otherwise it's fine. :) So flop raising is pretty standard, both ways should be fine, though raising would maybe even gain fold equity.
