** link removed as per TOS **

my thinking was i only invested 60 to my 2990 stack my opp donks a pot size bet and one opponent cold call which left me to act + another opponent waiting to act

i just dont want to play big pot with my Aces 4 way into the flop this early in the game

my friend is telling me that I should have reraised then maybe fold to 3bet which i dont like to do because it is way too early and I know I can get easy chips in a better spot

what do you think? too nitty? should I at least flat first?

Hi marv

I think your fold is too nitty. I'd have opted to call. Raising would be awful as it would give away the strength of our hand and it's just screaming to everyone at the table that you have an overpair. The donk bet is nothing to worry about, probably a a small overpair or air, not too worried about the the big blinds call either, he can have any pair/random overs. I'd call and then fold once kuki raises and everyone goes nuts.

I think by folding we're missing out on a great opportunity to chip up. Kuki will often fold and the turn will be a brick, lets say Jx, both players will check to us and now we can get two streets worth of value.

Cheers, Chris.
