Donk on the Turn

Luis HernandezLuis Hernandez Red Chipper Posts: 8 ✭✭
Please find bellow a hand I played the other day. I started playing a few months ago (brand new to the game) but Im spending hours and hours on studying, so please excuse me if there is any mistakes. Looking at the hand I think I should have fold on the turn clearly because of the sizing of his bet, but the turn is quite good to me. Is this a cooler? is an easy fold? if so why? I would like to learn from you guys. Thank you for sharing.

    you should never be folding this turn. I was actually consider raising the turn. There are a lot of 98, 87, 76, etc hands that bet the turn that you are still pretty far ahead of.

    Long run I think it's just a flat call on the turn, but possibly a raise a good portion of the time. The stack sizes are not very deep and given the turn range, I think the river might be a call as well because so many of the draws miss, but villain could easily be turning lower two pair into a bluff.

    Looking at the turn once more, I think the turn might actually be a shove given the stack sizes.

    Hi @Luis Hernandez

    I agree with @Austin , I would shove the turn given the stack sizes. He could easily donk here with lower TP or Pair+draw, you're far ahead in terms of ranges.
