      Preflop: r/f for value?

      Flop: Think I have to raise/fold vs 3b for value/protection since the pot was unraised and villain can be donking with any pair or draw IMO. Don't really want to stack off here though and by calling I allow him to see a cheap turn and don't extract any value.

      Turn: He can have 2pr+ here but I b/f again on the turn for value/protection vs weaker pairs and draws (8x, 7x and FD's in particular). Plan was to x/beh R or call a small bet up to 1/2 pot if draws miss.

      Hey muel294,

      I like the line of yours except the preflop action which is a bit too passive. Just take the initiative and raise for value. Definitely a lot of dominated hands that are gonna call. Nice hand!

      Best regards,
