Ok let's just say I am a complete Limit Donk. The only time I've ever played is when I dabbled in Horse a few years back. I always seemed to win but I think it's because I was playing a bunch of stud specialists that really didn't know much about Hold'em. That said, I'm taking a NLHE break cause I'm a bit burned out at the moment. I am gonna post a bunch of random line-check hands here because I feel like I am missing a lot and making a lot of mistakes. I need some water thrown in my face. Here's the first...PokerStars 0.50/1.00 Hold'em (9 handed) Hand History converter Courtesy of PokerZion.comPreflop: Hero is BB with 9[:spade:], K[:heart:]. 3 folds, MP2 calls, 4 folds, Hero checks.Flop: (2.50 SB) 7[:heart:], T[:heart:], 4[:spade:] (2 players)Hero checks, MP2 checks.Turn: (1.25 BB) T[:club:] (2 players)Hero bets, MP2 calls.River: (3.25 BB) 4[:heart:] (2 players)Hero checks, MP2 checks.Final Pot: 3.25 BB

Maybe my way is not the best, but if I am going to try this I bet the flop and turn and not just the turn. In a HU situation and me first to act i auto bet that flop. If I am called I figure Villain has a piece of it. If the card that hits the turn is different from the flop cards and gives me nothing i check that turn, but if the board pairs I fire out again. If I'm called I check the river and only call if the river hits me in some way.
So powerful and mighty the ocean be, yet it harbors the gentlest souls.

Your value in these hands comes from c/c the turn and/or river. MP2 just open limped so he has a huge portion of hands that you have the nuts against and when he doesn't bet the flop he isn't trapping, he just has nothing, so let him barrell off if he wants to and just get to showdown here.

betting the river could look like you missed a c/r on the flop and betting that river puts villain in an ugly spot, and if v is aggro he still could show up with A high a lot here so i dont like checking the river we almost never win the hand unless v happens to have garbage, which would have folded anyways
