      This looks like a easy fold on the river? I call because of this hand played earlier vs him

      Do you think that this history is enough to call his river donk?

      Hi,


      I'd raise bigger preflop on both hands to account for the limper, at least $1.25 and even $1.50 to make the pot bigger and allow us to place even bigger valuebets postflop if you feel comfortable with it, since that guy will call with worse almost always.

      Given his meaningless donk-shove with TPNK in the second hand, we can probably assume he doesn't really know what he is doing. However, just because he did it with TPNK once doesn't mean he doesn't play a flush the same way. Since there are only 2 A left in the deck and we don't know if he can make a pure bluff in that spot, i think a flush is also a very real possibility. Another subtle but important point is that in the second hand he might have thought he was already "committed" by shoving for a 2/3 pot bet left, whereas he consciously decided to overbet (but without shoving his whole stack in) in the first hand.

      Overall I think i would fold that river to avoid the variance, as i don't think these two situations are similar in his mind.


      The rest is fine in both hands.


      Hope it helps.
