      Not got too much experience playing deep but I'm sure I'm crushed in this spot, is it worth taking a more passive line when we are this deep? Calling the flop for example?

      I'm fine with the c/r. Donkbetting should be fine also.

      The good thing about being agressive here is that he can call us with so many draws or weaker hands because he's got implieds, since we're so deep. What he doesn't know is that we're awesome players and won't pay him off when he hits :evil:

      So I'm fine with c/r. Definitely b/f turn. He's got you totally smashed here.
      The good thing about db flop instead of c/r is that he could potentially check back many hands worse than yours, but with some equity suchs as AK, KT, JT. He always calls a donkbet.
      So it'd depend on the player. If he cbets a lot, I like c/r. If he checks back a lot, I like donkbetting =)
