  • Big 5.5 - facing a donk bet from a weak player

    Hi guys, I'll be posting a series of hands that I played yesterday in The Big 5.5$ (These hands are marked with the green arrow icon in the message list); I'm looking for quick evaluation just to get some confirmation on my tournament play Here we open 99 from MP and we get called in two spots. Both players look recreational. HJ 19/5/9 (96 Hands), SB 38/14/1 (79 Hands). The SB leads out for ~1/2 pot. What would you do with 16bbs remaining and what is your consideration when there is another player left to act? I've seen the SB overplay a few TPWK hands, so I don't discount the fact that this guy could have a hand like A2, 99-33, or some FDs.

    Hi George

    When villain leads out it leaves us with pretty much a pot sized bet so the best option for us here would be to cram it all in imo.

    If we had more chips then I would certainly just call so that we can A keep villain 7 in the pot and B to gather some information on villain 4's hand but with a pot sized bet left it only makes sense to get it all in and I would expect villain 4 to fold and villain 7 to call with most of his holdings, and we crush those so it's fine

    Cheers, Chris.
