      Hi Acetbfish,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: We can see villain is shorter which means that he may be recreational.

      Our cbet on the flop is fine and while turn ck/call is an option I'd prefer a bet/fold.

      As played I'd donk river slightly larger as I don't think 2p will fold especially since FD missed.

      Hi Bogdan,

      do you think that losing the initiative here is a leak? Generally when I lose the initiative I also give up the hand but here his bet is small and I thought that I could still have the best hand.

      Not always,

      It really depends on the opponent and the range you think they have. For example you can lose initiative against people that love to float (and then bet turn if checked to). But in this case, given that we have no info, ck/call puts us in a tough spot OOP.
