      BB: $9.50 - VPIP: 38, PFR: 5, 3B: 0, AF: 1,0, Hands: 21
      Hero (UTG): $37.10 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 18, 3B: 5, AF: 4,8, Hands: 90087

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is UTG with K :club: Q :diamond:
      Hero raises to $0.75, 4 folds, BB calls $0.50

      Flop: ($1.60) T :diamond: 8 :spade: K :diamond: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.25, Hero raises to $1.25, BB calls $1

      Turn: ($4.10) 4 :spade: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $3.00, BB folds

      Opponent: openlimping non-fullstacked fish.

      1) Shouldn't I have raised a bit bigger (to $1.75?) on the flop vs all his draws and weaker hands?
      2) If such a guy calls the turn and a very blank river comes, may we even valuepush?

      Only AK that got us beat and sets and two pair, I would value shove on a brick, theres so few combination who beat us.

      Hello Avatars91,

      What was the plan with the raise on the flop? Raise/Fold or Raise/Broke?

      Value-push wouldn't make sense -> then rather Raise the flop bigger and prepare a shove.

      Best Regards.

      Vs his stack size I think we have to play raise/broke. He may be playing draws and some weaker pairs this way.
      Though mindonk/raise does look like a trappy line.

      That should be the plan if you raising. Can't really Raise/Fold, though you going to see very often traps which play this way.

      Is calling instead of raise/broke really an option on the flop? Looks like quite a lot of missed value.

      Well, who was talking about calling? Did you see me talking about calling? I wanted to hear your answer to other question. ;)
