Maybe. But how much more? And please don't insult me by saying 'and if you do that... you don't lose!' or some other obvious falsity.


I liked the pf raise personally. I didn't expect the BB to come along, but I was planning to play this pot post-flop rather than commit myself pf. This way, if the flop hits an ace and I bet out and he pushes, I'm not commited to stack off. Also, I'm encouraging him to make a mistake on the flop (irony of ironies) by not making the raise so huge he has to fold everything but AA/KK/AK pf.

Don't forget when evaluating the pf raise, his was a smaller raise to open it, so I don't have to be re-raising to 9x the BB total or something, because he barely made more than a minraise. So my raise should naturally be somewhere between a standard opening raise (2.5 to 3x BB) and a standard 3-bet (7 to 9x BB), obviously being much closer to a 3bet. I made it 7200 total pf, which is 6x exactly.

So how you would have played it that is so different?

Personally, I think I owned this guy badly, and the only reason he called was (1) he's a horrible donk, (2) he couldn't drop TP to save his life, and (3) he waited until like 5 seconds were left in his timebank, proving that (2) is likely the case.
