  • 5NL 6-max Zoom - I open raise utg AQs sb calls and donks 3x pot on 479r flop

    Hi,

    Not asking for a serious review here (of my insane disbelief) of what the villain is doing.

    Just fun at the micros - what is wrong with the donk bet size?

    We should set up a notes trade staking thread - Player 2 can't wait for him next time.

    I open raise utg AQhh and sb calls and donks about 3x pot on 479r flop no hearts.

    The rest is >>madness<< if you are a believer that the villain actually has something.

      Hey Forrest I think I would have folded to this donk bet. The problem is really in his size. It is a size that lays him a bad price to pick up the pot, and a great price for us the times we have a pair in our hand, like TT or better. With AQ we are usually going to have outs versus the times he has a pair but we can just get the money in so well with a huge amount of our range here that we don't need to go out on a limb with AQ. One thing to keep in mind is that when someone bets big you only need to continue seldomly to "keep them honest." When they bet small you need to continue more often to keep them honest. This guy has bet really large in this situation, so I would limit my continuing to my stronger hands. umbup:

        Make a note that villain overbets with gutshot + 2 overs (37% equity versus your hand), and play accordingly. Just be wary that sometimes he's gonna have a set here and you'll be drawing dead.

          Forrest, I had one of my own of those type of hands ... was sooooooo tempted to call!!!!!!!! Sigh ...

          I put the button on some junk hand like JKo, some crap pocket pair, or Ax that may or may not have actually made a pair ... next time hopefully the person'll raise wide thinking I'll fold? Or not give my raises credit because they think I'm a monkey too?? [/spoiler]

            Thanks for the replies guys and girls,

            @Gareth yes I understand what you are saying. I don't take the non-believer line too often. My thoughts in the words of an American tennis player from the past - YOU CAN'T BE SERIOUS. I have seen this villain before. I iso raise his limp ip he 3-bet slams or if he wants to see a flop oop then comes the donk pot bet.

            @Sand I didn't call - slam OTT in your face with some fold equity - should fold out jack or ten high but he calls.

            @Arty it's sad that I didn't take a note in the client - just recognize avatar, country Iceland and lobby 1 zoom table.

            @Sam your hand is a bit tricky flatting a 4-bet oop. I'm folding too. It's a stack risk 5-bet with AQ if you are sure about the villain calling light.

            But it's a "That's poker" when it goes wrong

            Or you look

              Don't mind me everybody ... just writing a note to myself NOTE TO SELF: The bigger the overbet, the better the hand you need to have to call.
