      Hi,


      I have 2 questions:

      1. even though I do not have the implied odds to call his raise there is a fish on the bb who will call most of the time, theoretically this should mean that I do have the implied odds. Is this an ok move?( cause I did it a few times)

      2. Today, when I called oop a lot of times I donked just below 1/2 pot as a bluff(only when I think villain might fold ofc.) and most of the time they folded.

      was it just this session, or is donking smaller is just as scary as donking bigger. I did this move mostly when I called from the blinds, and the flop was bluffable from my part.
      So my move was basically donk fold, and if it is the same as bigger, than i lose less money if I get reraised.

      I forgot, that most of the time I do this aggainst weak players.

      Hey BotiaKiraly,

      1. Preflop reasoning is correct. You may not have implieds to set-mine vs original open raiser, but if a fish will overcall it's fine to continue with PP's.

      2. It's very important as a general poker principle. If you can bluff for 1/2 pot with the same fold-equity as full-pot, you are burning money by betting full pot. In reality folding frequencies will be villain dependent and also board texture dependent, so experiment vs different villains.
