Hi
Do I have to raise him here ? Just thought he is loose enough to call or even re-raise me with even T2 stats , VP26/PR7/3bet 6.
Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

Hi Schichi-77

You certainly don't have to raise here, although raising wouldn't be a terrible thing to do. My decision in these spots are heavily based on my opponents tendencies. Have we seen him donk bet the flop before? If so then did he slow down on the turn? Does he often defend the blinds? These are the questions we ought to be asking ourselves before we decide what we want to do.

Vs most player types I would like to call, we have 2 over cards and backdoor spades as well as the positional advantage, and quite possibly the best hand.

I think I'm calling the donk bet 60% of the time and raising 30%, and folding 10%.

I used to raise these spots much more often than I do now but it feels as if even the weaker players amongst us now days see our raise as weakness/semi bluff.

Cheers, Chris.
