  • Facing Turn donk in 3bet pot

    villain is 38/35 with Agg of 5 over 25 hands
    On the flop I bet 100% of my range, decided to bet small to keep the weaker pairs in play.

    The turn gives me the nut FD + nut SD
    Villain donks 2/3 pot. This does not look like a blocker bet.
    I was not sure what to do here. Call or raise. I was not able to find any scenario where solver raises here.
    The benefit of raising would be ??? Thinking about it now, I get called only by stuff which beats me
    Calling keeps junk in play and I can happily call any R bet

    I think we just call turn. I don't think many if any worse hands call, particularly when we hold the Ad which blocks some of the draws, and draws+pairs that we're ahead of that might call a raise. So we don't have a value driven initiative, and we don't want to turn TPTK w/ NF blocker into a bluff. Plus at this SPR, if we call, we can still easily get it all in on the river if we want to.I agree this doesn't seem like a blocker bet with a marginal hand, so best case scenario villain's range is the nuts and good draws, and we would definitely rather call against that range.
