      My Expansion to SSS: I raise ATC from BB to 3 a 4 BB if SB completes first in (So headsup Blinds basically pre-flop)

      PostFlop I got TopPairNoKicker, He donkbets. What to do & what to expect?
      I think he holds Mid Pocket Pairs or Overpairs. Nevertheless Overcards can also be expected in my POV

      Thanks in advance
      HAND #1

      Party Poker, $0.05/$0.10 NL Hold'em Cash Game, 9 Players

      Pre-Flop: Hero is BB with 2
      7 folds, SB completes, Hero raises to $0.30, SB calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.60) 8 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.70, Hero folds

      Results (listed below in white, highlight to see): $0.60 pot ($0.03 rake)
      SB mucked and won $0.57 ($0.27 net)

      I think he can hold any 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9. All of these combined with an overcard.
      But with top pair, I think you have a reasonable chance of being in front.
      He bets a bit more than potsize, not a bet that says "look I flopped the nuts, please call this cheap bet and give me all your money slowly".

      As I said this afternoon, I would have probably pushed this here.
      On the other hand, people might make a note of you, doing these kind of stealraises with ATC.

      Let's put it this way, I think you have the best hand on the flop :)

      i would fold this one also 2 as kicker isnt any good,but if you have read that guy is some idiot you can go all in and hope he has 5x,or 6x

      Hi Gerv,

      I don't like your pre flop raise with 82o just check it, you don't want to play a big pot with 82o. As you can see even when you hit top pair you are not sure how to play further so just check fold all the way.

      Best Regards
