      The re-raise on the flop is pretty standart i think. But there comes trouble on the turn. I didn't read his check as a possible slowplay, so decided to take another stab here. Unfortunately it didn't worked out. Any advice on this hand?
      P.S. This player was just a gift from heaven after this hand. Here he showed 97o. And afterwards payed me off with almost anything. Called almost any hand pre, bet out busted draws (including the evermighty pair draws) on river and other +EV stuff :f_biggrin: +1.2 BI just because of this guy today :f_grin:

      Hi dude, I got really high :D

      Flop raise is nice, however without good readz I check turn c/f river;-)

      I don't think raising the flop with nothing but an overcard and some backdoors against a full pot donkbet is standard for many people. Against a 6x/1x/1.6 it can't be awful since they're usually capable of screwing around enough, but they're also not guaranteed to fold anything which means you're potentially setting up a situation where you're trying to bluff a crazy guy that could do anything in response for 100bb.

      So I'd say just give him this one unless you specifically want to test the waters or you have good enough reads to handle the play on later streets.

      As played on the turn I don't really expect him to fold much so I'd check behind, if you belive otherwise just jam on him to give him a real decision, when you bet small he'll just talk himself into calling too easily.

      Hope it helps.
