      Eh, raise flop more, to about .45 - .50, then maybe call a turn. I don't see him having anything better than a 1 pair, maybe some 99-JJ, or overpair so the turn may be a scare card. I'd call the turn, then evaluate the river situation. It's doubtful he has a draw so it's safe to let him draw to 2 outs.

      Agreed. When he doesn't 3bet the flop and donks out the turn smallish he's mostly saying he doesn't have a strong enough hand to get all-in, so buhhy's line will likely get your more value out of his weakish range. If he donks again the river just jam on him, if he doesn't make a valuebet he can call with 7x/88-99 type of hand.

      If somehow we're wrong about him being weak on the turn, it doesn't matter since with a strong hand he'll lead the river again or check/shove on us, so we're still getting the money.


      Hope it helps.
