    hey, i dont like the big R bet on 248ssA5s board (28th min) dont like polarizing your vbet range here, by bettin smaller u rep more, like str8, sets, 2 pair still.. also: the no. of bets in these spots is more intimidating that their size from my exp. If he happens to have the flush (likely) we risk less too. /?

    Hi just noticed these comments, doesn't seem to be displaying properly but I'll field what I see.

    #2 Our donk range is pretty polarized anyway, so if we bet a a more merged range amount we not only give up value the times when we are valuetowning and he has a calling hand (if balance is important), but we should actually be less believable in theory. I mean, we don't have 2 pairs hardly ever, and if we did have a set, I wouldn't be expecting too much value because of how often he's expecting us to have the flush. If we did have a set, I'd definately bet an amount that begs a call. So then since I think this opponent is swayed by betsize, I'd rather rep confident value instead of begging for curiosity.

    #3 - he's too passive
