  • 5NL FR, AK in BB, best possible play?

    Hi. I'd like to know if I made the best possible play here. What could I've done better? No reliable stats on villain, possible loose/aggressive. Cheers, DrJ

    I would say standard. U could have raised flop, but then again I think calling is better.

      Hi DrJ,

      When Villain donks on this board, I don't think they will stop betting OTT with their heart draws, PPs, or pure bluffs because of his bet sizing. So calling to hit an A or a K is catch-up poker. With 12% to hit OTT, I'm just folding the flop donk bet only because there is little chance we can take this pot away OTT and little chance to improve to the best hand - we also don't know if they can do this with a Jx hand so we might not even be good when an A or a K comes.

        ... raising is an option as braveslice mentions, but I'd do that on a different board as there is little we can rep here.

          Thanks for the input

          When I played this hand, reason told me to fold to his flop bet. I'll listen to reason next time....
