    I'd treat it as a check. If you planned to cbet, do so, his 'bet' could mean anything but it's generally weak.

              Hi adi,

              I think either raising or calling are valid options here and each has their merits. If we do raise we should be prepared to get stacks in should we get reraised, but I believe that usually when this happens we will be behind their stack off range... only a slight fav over hands like TcTs, and a solid dog to sets. The one caveat is that we might get it in vs. the few dominated draws in their range.

              I lean towards calling personally, as I think we will have opportunities to take this pot away from the donk bettor later in the hand even when we don't improve, and it may induce the player behind us with big chips to make a move, allowing is to back raise all in super profitably.

              The only thing I don't really like is shoving all in directly. It's too big a raise for this situation imo... if we do raise I would make it like $1500 to go, which should we get called, sets up a turn shove of 3100 into 4800.

                I made a small raise, I don't know why. Maybe coz I didn't had too many chips. *** FLOP *** [ ] (Total Pot: 1,860, 3 Players) ---ARenteriaP-- bets 200 adikumar2010 raises to 600 figgyan raises to 12,225, and is all in ---ARenteriaP-- folds adikumar2010 Now how to proceed Mr.Hitman? I hope I put his shove range correct :
