      I felt i was a bit lost int his hand from when he raised on the flop. Was calling the good approach, or better shove? I was fearing a set, but then he surprised me with his bad play.

      So what would have been ur play with this hand?

      Hi,

      what do you want to achieve by calling flop and then donkbetting turn with half pot?

      Preflop: Fine
      Flop: b/c minraise
      Turn: c/c
      River: c/c if blank falls, c/f if scare card falls

      Let's see what the judges think.

      Best regards,
      Anin

      I think on that level overpair is often nuts in drawy pot against player who just min-raises
      So I´d go with my hand on the flop by 3-betting to 2,5$ and calling shov or if he calls then shove any turn card
      b/c turn is fine, since draw missed, but I´d prefer betting 2$ and since he just calls then you can shove river for value
