  • nl2 flop set in BB, donk or chek raise?


    cuple of small questions to day for curiosity.

    was table selecting alot today, somthing i dont do much, so never got much reads on these 2 hands.

    ok in the BB i flop a set from a TAG open, SB calls also, problem slightly there is 2 flush cards on flop, i decide the TAG will continue, so i go for check raise, instead of donk, or call flop c bet from TAG.. what do u think is best move here? donk, check call, or check raise?

    part of my thinking process for alot of hands is to try take it down before river somtimes coz i can see a sukout, this is kinda one example! i mite be loosing value?

    Hi Taxed,

    I think check-raising is fine here, if he's got a hand he won't release it and we might be able to trap the SB between.

    I don't really like the preflop call too much though tbh. Definitely going to play this hand vs. a TAG's button open (for a min raise... probably a lot of steals in his range) and the SB call. But I think it's probably more +EV to 3b here. A8 doesn't play that well out of position without the initiative. But it's a nice hand to resteal with and it's actually a thin value raise imo as I think we are likely ahead of both their ranges in a spot like this. So I like seizing the initiative from the button stealer and not letting the SB speculate cheaply.
