How do we go about playing this? We're only about 5 hands in, and I usually stay right away from hands like this, but I was blinded in.

Villain is very loose; 100/60/5. I've got one note: he raised with 99 first hand utg+1 for 4BBs and showed it when it got folded around.

I haven't played a hand yet.

Make a pot sized bet and see what he does.

I don't think he believes you have an Ace becuase you didn't raise preflop in the big blind. He probably has K, Q or Q, J.

What will call a pot bet that we have beat?

he's a 100%vpip donk - any ace, any queen, kj/kt/jt and some mid pp's will all probably stick around.

leading for half the pot seems reasonable - there are no big draws out there so we don't really need to make a pot-sized bet, and we want to make sure we drag him along with what is most likely a weak made hand.

check-calling and leading the river here (or playing 'confuse-a-donk' as i like to call it) isn't necessarily a bad idea here either.

If I lead the turn strong and then the river, I think it makes it pretty clear to the donk that I've got an ace. Then again with that loose of a player I don't think leading is bad...he was a little tighter postflop, but even so he'll call with any queen and (well just pretty much the range you laid out, chris).


I end up checking, and he checks behind. The river brings a 7...
