      Looks pretty standard to me.

      I did not raise turn as he looks a lot like 9T because of his bet sizing. Plan is to fold river if he shoves and I don't get a fh.

      Hi,

      flop is dry, but since he would often b/c I would prefer raising flop 3.5$ and then bet big on the turn and maybe shove blank river.
      As played: I would likely raise turn, since looks like he is going with his hand and his all-in range are a much wider than just 9T (also I would not fold on blank river, since he is likely just bluffing too often)

      best regards,

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      As I would take this kind of donk as a Check I am almost always raising here for value. :) Will be difficult to get his stack, though otherwise not much to do, raising turn would be just kicking everything weaker out.

      Best Regards.

      I don't see why raising is such obvious play here because of our super high blocking effect. We want villain to hit a pair with his random 2 cards not to fold them. We could raise to 2$ or something but again we will kick out many random hands in his range.

      I think turn is a raise. He obviously LOVES his hand, could have 22/88/qj/q8/q10/q9 that he is like wowowowowowo nuts baby.

      So I think raise turn or raise flopis both fine, I don't want a river to come like this and he c/f or jam and we don't know what to do :)

      As played I would fold river, although it is admittedly very dirty.

      Ok, turned 2pair can make a lot of sense here based on bet sizing, can't see how he would play a set like this here though.

      A bad player can certainly decide to get tricky with 88 or 55 here, but yeah most likely the queen improved him. I agree with pleno1, raise flop or turn is mandatory.
