How do you handle the Donkey Bet?
For those who do not know, a donkey bet
is when you bet the flop into the preflop raiser. It goes like this;
UTG limps in and flat calls your later position raise. Flop comes, he is first to act and he bets out right into you.
Lots of factors involved, I'm sure. He might make you out to be a weak player who only raises with premium hands and will gladly take you down with rags he manages to flop a small piece of on a no-paint board. He might be bluffing
with total air, or he might be thinking you will call down with AK on a board you never pair with. He might be limp-calling with a huge hand, however.
In Super System, Doyle really likes this when he flops a big hand or draw. After all, the original raiser rep'd a big hand, he was the pre flop raiser, right? So he is going to call or get it all in bad. In a perfect world, anyway!
How do you see it? What do you do/do not do? When and why?
