      Hell yeah! Fish is on NL25! :f_biggrin: My first in forum posted NL25 hand, lets hope one of many..

      What do you think of my flop play? Flop is dry and he bets big so I decided to call. Should it be better raise flop and fold to action? He slows down on river, but I don't see any sense in betting.

      Raising on that flop with your hand doesn't make sense, since you'd be turning your TP into a bluff, and doing it on dry boards kinda sucks. I also call flop.

      Turn blanks, so I call again for same reasons than on the flop.

      And I happily take the free showdown on that river.

      You played it fine.

      As Volrath89 said, if you raise TPGK on the flop you're turning it into a bluff. That becomes an information raise, whose sole purpose is to help you decide if you're beat or not to make your play easier. Most of the time that's suboptimal, you want either better hands to fold or worse hands to call when you bet or raise, and that won't happen here most likely. Plus he's very aggressive and donks a lot, so unless you think you can value raise/call with TPGK to induce a shove by airball hands from him, you're better off letting him bluff the turn into you again.

      Turn and river are standard.

      Hope it helps.
