So, a few things. Villain #1 (UTG) was brand new and I had never played a hand with him before. I leaned slightly towards the crazy/loose side though, as they were too impatient to wait 1 hand to post their BB. Villain #2 likes to splash around and make little defensive bets.
I think I could have raised a bit more pre...to 6 or 7x bb instead of 5x. On the flop I'm pretty sure raising is correct, but I think I should have potted it. Flat calling has some merit (a little pot control) but it seems negligible compared to a raise.
Slight further read on villain #1 -> his call on the flop was so quick I get the feeling he had the "call any" button checked. Slightly more weight to the idea he called with a draw.
In the end though, I'm really torn on whether folding the river was correct. Slightly under 2:1 pot odds
, but after thinking I just didn't think i'd see a bluff/pair+draw often enough. Am I not giving donks enough credit for crazy?
Opinions? Is this a spot I should make a crying turn call at more readily? Other spots I could have made a better play?
