      Hello coach and viewers!

      This hand happened immediately after the QTs hand ([nl4] – QTs) in which I won a decent pot from the villain. He’s been pretty aggressive so far. (As I was multi-tabling I hadn’t noticed this table had so few players left. I was actually playing full ring.)
      I called pre-flop because I thought the BTN was steaming a little... Should I have bet the flop?

      Hey DraakG,

      Preflop call is a little on the loose side OOP. You could consider 3betting as a bluff or folding.

      On the flop, BTN could be cbetting anything he opened with. You have to call at least one street with your top pair imo. Donking would be ok, but the board is dry enough that I'd normally check. There are no open ended straight draws or flushdraws, only gutshots and pairs with 5 outs.
