      $37.75 pot ($1.88 rake)
      Final Board: 2 A 8 7 Q
      Hero showed A K and won $35.87 ($17.12 net)
      SB showed J 6 and lost (-$18.75 net)

      Pre: standard

      Flop: the betting sequence here looks like 2 fishes, lol. Basically my thinking was that his small donk represents fuck all on this dry board. I can raise a proper size -> he probably folds, not much value. I can call down -> not much value because of his sizing. Or instead, click it back and maybe induce some kind of spew.

      Turn, river: hold on for the ride.

      If you are going to raise (which is by far the best flop play imho) do it bigger, he's no folding 8x, Ax because of your raise size. You are missing a lot of value by doing so.

      Hi Member,

      Preflop: With potential fish in the blinds we can again open larger (our entire range)

      Postflop: While I agree that he doesn't rep a lot of strong hands with the small donk I think that a bigger raise such as $1.5 can achieve just about the same (against unknown).

      Against spewy fish I'd agree with your line.

      Based on our play we can't fold turn or river. You can even click it back on the turn.

      As a side note, in case you didn't know, when you leave a reply and would like the judges to come back to the hand please hit the "advise judge to take another look" button.
