River: ($16.50, 2 players) T:club:

Is pre flop open to loos from me?
After he donk bet us what do we do?
My thinking was just call him down on all streets.Correct?
He could be doing this with sets, flush draws and 88,99.
On the river i decide to check because of the flush.
Opinion, suggestion, comments ?

Hi rudar47,

I think this is played fine. I might consider a thin value bet OTR from weaker Qx but the villain's stats suggest a tight range so perhaps a 2 street value is all we are getting out of this hand anyway. I wouldn't worry about the flush when he checks the river though.

The open is fine, calling down is the best play here. raising just folds out bluff and weak draws and lets villain continue with a stronger range. as above u could thin value but check river behind is fine.
