      Too high on preflop. Flop overplayed

      okay, okay... in the post I made with 10s... they said I didn't make it enough preflop, now here I make it too much?! I mean I raised it against a calling station (quite literally... VPIP 72/PR 6). Essentially what he would do is just call you preflop and if he hit just lead out and just call you down. In this partically spot I felt there were more hands that I was going to be beating (even if he can call the all in). I am aware that the flop raise is a ridiculous overbet, but why not try and get it in asap if I think I have the best hand?

      Hi germany5590,

      I think it is too high of a sizing. You should take a general rule of 3/4bb +1 bb/ limper. We don't have any read here I assume since this is zoom, on regular tables you can start experimenting with larger unbalanced raises against fish.

      On the flop I thin this is deff an overplay since villain is not going to like ever lead here. At beast he has some combo draw against which we are flipping or has us completely crushed so I would personally fold without the A:spade: here.

      Best regards.
