hi all

few questions here,, is my 66percent flop bet ok? or too low/high? ,, also, should I be shooting again on turn? on river, with his donk $2 probe bet, should I have 5 or even 6 bet? or should I be folding?

Hi hanny!

Good raise preflop for value.
I think your cbet size is decent. Anything between 5$-6$ is standard I think.
I don't like this flop too much tbh, but I'd cbet it anyways and my plan is to cbet smaller here because I want to put a 2nd barrel on good turn cards to put pressure on hands like JJ-77. I think we got a good opportunity to do so on this turn; Qh I would bet 1/2 pot

Another way we could play this hand is to check back the flop, and go for a delayed cbet or bluff catch on later streets. So I think cbetting is the standard line, delayed cbet is an alternative, and bluff catch with Ace high is a special line against an aggressive, bluff happy, opponent. So depends on our villain and how they perceive us.

OTR, If I were to call it's basically a price to pay to see his cards. I'd never expect myself to win there. But his bet size looks either: weak, or superstrong inducing a raise. I don't think they will bet so small with a 9x. Qx might take a x/c line. So it's either a weak one pair hand, or a monster. Interesting to see what they will do if we raise it here to 10$
