$10 NLHE 6-max: Flush draw post-flop. Donk or not donk?
Live game and no HUD stats.
Villain - on button. No real hand history against him, but he had been playing a nondescript game to this point. He was basically even and had no huge wins or errors that I had observed. Assume he is a reasonably good player, not fish and probably not a jedi.
Me - BB with QsKs
We both have about 100BB stacks
Fold to button
Villain - raises to .20 (2 BBs)
SB - folds
Me - call
I though about raising here, maybe I should have? Interested to hear thoughts about that.
Pot = .45
What to do? In general, I like to bet when I have a flush draw such as this as a semi-bluff. I find it gives me some info on where I stand, and builds the pot lest I hit my flush later. Often i will get a free river card if I check the turn (but not always and I end up folding the turn if I miss and get bet into).
On the other hand, if I donk bet here and get re-raised, I am going to have to fold….maybe if I check/call i can see that river more cheaply? Of course, I probably will not be getting pot odds
on the call, and I loose all fold equity.
What would you do? Why? I think I may have answered my own question, but would like to hear your thoughts.
