      Stats:26/8/0,0/39 hands...to small sample to say something about this player, he is unknown for me

      Preflop I standartly open A8s from Co.


      Flop I hit two pairs and villain donks pot. I was almost sure that he would not do that with two pairs or set ...I put him on flush draw almost always and sometimes top pair wtih weak kicker (I've seen it before, donk with TP weak kicker) so I raise 3x for value and protection against FD.

      Turn I bet strong again for value,turn is blank for his range in my opinion.

      River is simply disaster and villain donk shoves and i think I can't call this.

      I know I have to win 1 of 5 times (pot odds), but I think I will never win on this river.

      Hello,

      I think A8s from this position is a bit loose and I would fold it unless there are players I want to play with.

      I like raising the flop here and we could even make our raise bigger.

      Turn is fine as well.

      I think folding river is fine.
      Although we are given great odds, I think that we are pretty much always against a flush here.

      Best,
      Plamen
