      Villain is unknown at the time

      Preflop: Standard for me

      Flop: When he donks so small I am expecting to see mainly pairs > TP and draws. Since there were some draws present I decided to raise for value and protection and fold to a 3b and re-evaluate turn if called, since I don't know the opponent well enough to know if he DB/3b's draws or QT for example.

      Turn: If knew villain is x/c'ing all his draws OOP here then I would b/f again for val/protection. However, I think it is much more likely that I will just turn my hand into a bluff by betting now, so decided to x/beh and maybe induce a river bluff if draws are missed. My plan for the river was to b/f 1/2 for value if checked to and call up to 1/2 if he bets.

      River: When villain bets so small here I decided to treat it as a check and just raise/fold for value as I am pretty sure he wouldn't DB/call,x/c, x/r with a weaker hand.

      Thanks

      Hello,

      Preflop raising is fine.

      I think raising the flop against his small donk is good here.

      As played, I'm definitely betting the turn as well. Board is quite connected and I doubt that the turn improves his hand at all.

      On the river raising is good.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Thanks Kyumpa

      As played, I'm definitely betting the turn as well. Board is quite connected and I doubt that the turn improves his hand at all.


      I only really expected him to x/c with something like QT or some draw here if I bet. Is this good enough reason to bet? If the board was a lot more draw heavy then I am bet folding here for sure.

      I basically expect him to call the turn here with something like:


      Board: 7:club: J:heart: Q:diamond:  2:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    55.94%  51.10%   4.84% { KdQc }
      MP3    44.06%  39.22%   4.84% { JdJs, JdJc, JsJc, 7d7h, 7d7s, 7h7s, T9s, AhQh, AsQs, KhQh, KsQs, QsJs, KhTh, KsTs, KcTc, QhTh, QsTs, QJo, T9o, AdQh, AdQs, AhQs, AsQh, AcQh, AcQs, KhQs, KsQh, KcQh, KcQs, KhTd, KhTs, KhTc, KsTd, KsTh, KsTc, KcTd, KcTh, KcTs, QhTd, QhTs, QhTc, QsTd, QsTh, QsTc }


      So I guess this already answers my own question: yes it would be an easy b/f T and x/beh R?

      Thanks
