      Preflop flat is not standard here but we can do it from time to time.

      This flop is one of the better ones we can see. C/c with intention of c/c not too big of a bet on the T.

      What do we do on this T? Can we donk? My plan was c/r. Can we c/shove or is it better to c/r and shove R?

      On this R we can't get lots of value but he might have some AJ, AQ. I bet 3/5 so he won't r with anything. Was thinking of betting smaller but he's calling with any Ax anyway so betting even more wouldn't be a mistake here.

      Hi Yax,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: We can't ck/shove the turn unless he pots it. So we'd normally go for a smaller raise.

      As played betting river is good but we should make it larger. Villain either has a hand he gives up with or a hand he pot controlled with and looks to call river with.

      So we can get more value with a ~$4 bet.
