      If you plan on check/calling and donking the turn, why not just donk the flop?

      Hi Kruppe,
      At this limit, donkbetting the flop may work, although against a TAG I prefer to check/raise the flop to represent a set and not let him catch overcards.
      As played, either c/f or b/f turn. C/F is best if your opponent is passive, meaning he will only bet better hands here, and if he won't fold any better hands to a bet. If you think your opponent will fire a 2nd barrel with air (and it's _very_ rare at those stakes imo), then a turn bet is better. I prefer c/f though.

      Regards,
      Craig

      ok, so C/C flop, C/F turn.

      if i expect a second barell, shouldn't i C/C turn? or C/R turn?

      You could, and against a player capable of 2-barrel bluffing (a TAG), then c/r directly on the flop.
