      Yep, raise the flop is better on a drawy flop like that. But if I were you I'd leave that table, unless someone's a donk (only MP1 and BB have medium VPIPs).

      Hi,


      I only see SB/MP2/MP3/BU as possibly decent opponents, and all of them are nits so it's not like they're going to be hard to play against. I certainly wouldn't mind sticking around if you can't find more juicy tables to replace it.

      On the flop I agreed, raise it up for value and felt it if necessary, you'll see people getting it in or at least not folding with any and all Qx that have at least a gutshot as well, flushdraws, pair+OESD hands too.

      As played raise the turn still for the same reasons.

      Just calling this disgusting river is okay just in case he had a naked Qx or AJ all along, but we're only in that situation because we misplayed it on earlier streets.


      Hope it helps.
