Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

Loose open but i had a fish on my left i thought i could get a stack from, anyway i flop decent and donk trying to set my own price to outdraw him.

I figured he might call my donk bet with any overpairs he could have but he min riases i call and get a ton of outs on the turn i figured because i can get his stack on the river if i hit its worth the call on the turn?

Is anyone folding or calling there vs a fish.

Hiya Mike!

Loose open indeed; but it's okay atleast it's not a limp/call :p
I don't like your reason to open loosely though against the fish who is in position on us; you say you could get a stack from them but you don't mention with what kind of hand? Like can you get his stack with TP? I think the hand is weak to consider three barrels; I'd rather have some more equity with a hand when I want to play against a fish unless they fold to cbets a lot in that case my plan would be to take the pot away on the flop when they miss 70% of the time.

Now when they 3bet so small and we get a call from the SB, I'm just calling for pot odds and trying to win a small to medium pot. OTF, I'd rather take a x/c line instead. I don't mind seeing a turn card, infact I'm happy to see a free card and if V1 bets and V2 calls I'm also getting good odds to call. As played, I'd call the raise and call the turn bet too. They are giving us 3:1 and we will improve to a straight or a flush with one card left 26% of the time. And we just improved to both

Looks like your preflop plan went perfectly well!
