    Of all your hands you have posted, this is the one I spent the most time on. Some questions for you: If Papazlon had raised larger after the river, would that had caused you to fold? The way I read this hand (I also played it through PokerSnowie) was all the moves were fairly optimal plays until Papazlon’s river bet (I would have sized it substantially larger) and your re-raise. I probably would have folded to most bets on the River…I realize your only option was to re-raise as you now had just a bluff-catcher. I Papazlon had made a donk bet on the flop, would you have folded? I probably would have also folded to a donk, check, bet.

    • My hand was worse than a bluff catcher, which often makes raising or folding the only options. If he led the flop, I would typically float. If you are trying to be balanced, it is important to have some hands in your range with that you call the flop and then fold if you do not improve on the turn.
