      I like it.

      - Looks like you are on a draw for a spade, or floating with medium hand
      - Builds pot
      - He will call or raise OP, fold AK(no spade)
      - Bet size shouldnt scare him
      - Doesn't allow him to get cheap showdown

      I wouldn't play it against a fish or a bad reg like this, but him being a platinum star made me think that I can actually represent something.

      So I call flop and bet turn exactly as you would expect someone at NL25 to bet if he was on a draw and wanted to create the perfect odds :)

      Its really a shame I can't play like this against 95% of NL25 Villains. They might raise me, but just because they'd think 'hey weak bet he will fold' not because they can put me on something.

      I really can't wait to play NL400+ where you have to guess very narrow ranges and not just play general ABC like at micros -.-

      When you raise flop, then it often looks like you have draw and players would not likely fodl there overpair, especially when they have flushdraw.
      Although just calling is also fine line.
      I´d bet 5$ on the turn.

      Thats the thing, he just sat down at the table and I wanted to look like a classic NL25 donk.

      Betting $5 could make him think I actually slowplayed sth and he might just call

      imo its all about predicting what hes going to do, it varies depending on villain.
