Question

You're playing in an aggressive six-max game online. It's folded to you in middle position with 5 7 and you raise to $8. Everyone folds to the big blind, who calls. The flop comes K 4 8. The BB is your average $1/$2 non-regular. Not terrible, but definitely not good. He donk-bets $10 into you on the flop.

What should you do?

Correct Answer: Raise

This is a weak lead by your opponent. Often these bets are made by players with a small pair attempting to see where they are at. Raising will take down the pot immediately a high percentage of the time. Those times it doesn't, you do have your straight draw to fall back on - it is a strong semi-bluff.

  • Raise (45%)
  • Fold (27%)
  • Call (28%)
