      Hey guys!


      My opponent is 39/13/5. In this spot...I was just....so unsure what should I do but in the same way since he is very loose and donks 40% of flops I decided to call till river if no bigger card will come. I personally think that this was a very bad play. I think that there should have been raise by me somewhere or fold.

      I left the spoiler because I was very surprised what he actually played because I would not put him on this given this line. But I would like to know what would you put him on since he is pretty loose.

      Hey man! :)

      Why are you not raising this flop? I can't see much that beats you in his range, if he does have two pair or a set then he will more than likely reraise, you'll then have much more info to base your decision on.

      If like you say are scared to see an overcard then you've gotta raise and protect :p.

      I'd disagree with the above post, no point in racing your just folding out most/ if not all of his worse hands that you beat including his bluffs and value owning yourself against better hands

      Wp and nice hand

      Hey,

      If he donks the pot this big I would suspect he often has connected with the flop. So for the sake of gaining value I would raise there. If the Turn is an overcard and he also Tx, he might slow down which is not the thing you want

      As played the Turncard forces you to play calldown as it completes a couple of draws

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      Hey gerv, if you raise he surely he's folding nearly all his Tx hands and only really continually with 2pair/ sets that have us crushed? Also the guys a massive LAG so by just calling you give him a chance to bluff as OP says he Donks 40% of flops, not its just not when he has top pair. I think overall your losing value by raising against hands you have beat and value owning yourself against better hands with a few expections of a couple Tx hands.

      He plays 39/13 , for sure he is not bet/folding Tx(T7s++) & draws. Sometimes he even check/raises 22/77 so from those 6 combo's in total, you can discount 2-3? I am not going to call just because he has 3 combo's of nuts in his range versus a lot of Tx & random garbage

      He is 39/13 meaning he is relatively loose/passive instead of Loose aggressive. But this is not preflop, this is postflop so any postflop stats from AyuraoA would be appreciated

      Mostly people do not 3barrel all-in as a bluff. There are some crazy people but the average joe just stabs once or twice so before there is any overcard or any other card that kills my action, I want to accrue value by raising
