      MP1 bets $0.20, Hero raises to $0.60, MP1 folds


      This guy limpcalls and then donkbets. I think here he might have some kind of missed pocket pair and is trying to take down the pot.

      Hi Botia,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Given he donked small I agree with your line here if you are looking to make your life easier.

      However we generally only get worse to fold and better to continue so I would prefer just calling there with our bluffcatcher.

      Do you think his range is mainly lower pocket pairs?

      Post-flop; well played

      I don't mind raising here. True, we might have and probably have the best hand at the moment, but his donk can be so many hands, and I wouldn't be too happy to call this down if e.g T/J/K/A comes down. It's a lot easier to play by just raising.

      With pocket tens I'd look for a call-down as we are most likely wa/wb.

      That was my second thought, if he calls or reraises I know I'm beat
