      Villain: 44/10, AF: 1.5(38%), SD: 26, 162h

      PRE
      Standard.

      FLOP
      Raising his donk for value against FD`s, 6x and also for protection.

      TURN
      I was the last aggressor on the flop, it does not make sense for him to donk 1/2 as a block-bet. He could be doing this with 34/64/44. I don`t even have TP, and I think I can`t call here.

      Hi Diena,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Fish take the line of donk/call and donk again often.

      From your experience what do you expect to see from villain here?

      From my experience I often see some sort of weaker made hand or draw and these made hands could be 77-88,6x, some 3x, 55 and even 9x. I think that we can try to raise for thin value again (and protection) and I wouldn't make it too big, probably around 0.85 or so. I would fold to a 3-bet.

      Hi!


      I would expect him to donk bigger on the flop with 77-88, 6x, 9x. On the flop, I mostly put him on draws.

      On the turn his donk size changes drastically, and I haven`t really seen fishes take such a line with draws. Mostly they donk small amount again.

      Anyway, as you said, I had to raise the turn for value.

      I would personally raise again and if you get 3-bet we can fold.

      That 4 doesn't change much other than keep his pairs in a similar shape (which is good for us). Of course 44/57 does get there on the turn which he could have played like this.

      What line did you take?

      I did fold. :f_p:

      For my defense, it was the last session of the day and probably one of the last hands.

      Funny thing is, I just played a session, where some fish took pretty much the same line and I ended up taking him to value town.


      Thank you!

      Glad to hear it worked out for you. Of course we don't want to be results oriented because sometimes they do have a better hand but that's usually a rare occurance (especially if we had a hand like A9/TT+ here).
