Hi, I see your name in the chat box all the time for the Zoom Live Training classes, asking lots of great questions

Have you been going over your hand histories recently? Lots of great questions here in HA now too

Do you play Zoom sometimes as well? If so, do you prefer regular tables to Zoom, or vice versa, or have no preference?

Hi Espada,

V6 does not seem like a great set mining target tbh, not likely to pay us off when we hit, but I don't mind flatting pre here as it may invite players behind us in, and we have a fish in the BB.

I think this is a spot I would prefer to flat and slow play a bit. Normally I don't like to slowplay flopped sets, but in this case our action when we cold 3b the flop looks so strong, it just screams monster. The fish can never continue easily now and V6 who wasn't a great set mining target anyway is probably not going broke with 1 pair to this action.

Plus the fish who min-donks out is a bit over-aggro post flop. V6 could be light a fair bit with this flop raise simply because he's trying to isolate the min-donk bet. If we flat the fish can call and peel easier, and can decide to try and squeeze with an errant 3b since it's his nature to over-aggress the flop.

The down side to flatting is that we risk a scary card coming off, and there are plenty for sure, but I think that risk is worth the reward of keeping the fish in the pot and giving him a chance to spazz out as well.
