      Hello everyone!

      In this hand I made a ROL and I have three questions:

      1) Was the call against donkbet the correct action on the Flop?
      2) Should I have done the Bet in position on the Turn?
      3) Was the check/behind on the River the correct action?

      Hey,

      a) imo call isn't the best move here. A player who plays TAG style is limping UTG. I think we can narrow his range to low pockets, something like 22-55. So on flop you have 6 outs for overcards and 1 for backdoor flush draw (I think 33, 66 wouldn't donk here, but rather slowplay).

      That's why I would put pressure on him by raising. Since you have backdoor flush draw, any :club: gives you additional equity + you can barrel any overcard to the board, which is likely to come on turn. Or you could fold flop directly.

      b) As played I think he could be in check/calling mode, so either bet both turn and river or check behind.

      c) I would bet thin something like 1/3 of the pot. On our limits people won't fold vs such a bet like ever.

      Hi JohnDoe1313, thank you for your answer.

      a) I understood, It's clear for me now that I should've raised. By that time, I thought he could be bluffing and, in case of a scare card on the turn, I could get the pot. Unfortunately, he called my bet.

      b) As I said, I thought he would fold after my Bet. When he called it I was afraid of he was doing slow play.

      c) Even though I got a TPTK on the River, I decided to do a check/behind because I was afraid of a possible check/raise. So I decided not to put more money.

      Honestly, I think I was in TILT in this hand. I'd lost $15 in this session and I didnt want to lose more money.

      Imo you don't need to be worried about getting check/raised, since 99-TT would raise preflop and 33, 66 are just 4 combinations compared to 18 combos of 22, 44-55 + maybe random hands, even though I don't think there is much/any of them.

      If you were on tilt, end session ;)

      A very good explanation, I can't say more to the Hand :)
      But make notes to such Players with which Hands they donk here.
