    Is Ok raise about 300 on the flop or should I raise more? Donk Bet is weak so I dont want him fold but if you look at turn card you get an idea what happened

    Are you calling AI on turn? he was like 51/21 af 2.7 after 40 hands

    Hi CZDonkey! Preflop, I would call the raise to 60 and it's a bonus when I end up with position the rest of the hand. The flop gives me top 2 pair, but does have straight and flush draws. The opp makes a very small bet here, which to me looks like a blocking bet to try and get priced in to draw. Due to this, I'm definitely raising and would size my raise to the size of the pot (270). The turn hits both a straight and the club flush and the opp shoves. Unless I've got history on the opp with a specific note that says that they'll bluff/shove a turn, I'm mucking here. Much more often than not, the opp here hit the flush or straight. I'd rather save my chips and look for a better spot. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
