      Hi there.

      That was the first hand of my session.

      On the flop:

      I bet for value, he reraises and I call with the plan to evaluate on turn. I know he is v aggressive.

      Turn: I check he raises and I feel he is either on a worst 9 or an overpair. I dont raise in order to keep his range wide.

      River: Maybe i should be raising there for value? I check to induce his bluffs, if he has a 9 or 8 I feel he is raising anyway most of the times for value.

      When he raises I feel I have the best hand most of the times and I raise for value which I think is sensible?

      Hi Elchipriota,

      Preflop: The call is somewhat marginal against UTG but we at least get a decent price for it.

      Postflop: What value are we getting with a donk bet of less than 1/2 pot here?

      All that we are doing, often, is to induce raises. I would bet/fold NOT bet/call that flop (as played).

      As played I'd raise the turn there for pure value. He could be bluffing but on that turn card it's very likely he is betting for value with overs/sets/9x. So I'd raise and start building the pot.

      Don't like this at all.

      Preflop: kind of close but prob fine if he is bad passive.

      Flop: I prefer x/c and not leading.

      Turn: once we turn trips we def have to c/r here to get value from overpairs.

      River: kind of a close spot but when he bets so big I think our hand is just a bluff catcher and we can't raise to get value from worse unless he is absolutely bad and would bet/call AA here.

      Thank you for the input guys.

      I feel I should start raising for value more often on the turn in these spots.
