Overall table dynamic is extremely loose preflop. A couple of opponents at the table (Seat8 and Seat7) are fairly aggro postflop, betting out, raising and check/raising w/ a wide range of hands. Seat3 is an inexperienced younger player, who has shown calling-station tendencies so far.
Hero is my friend in seat 6 at a 9 handed table. I'm helping him out by recording as many hands as possible.
Hero is dealt: AJ
Seat2 posts SB, Seat3 posts BB.
Hero calls, Seat6, Seat7, Seat8, Seat1, Seat2 and Seat3 all call.
- I think he should have raised pre.
Flop: Q 3 T (7 SB, 7 players)
Checked to Seat8 who bets. Seat2 calls, Seat3 calls, Hero calls, Seat6 calls, Seat7 folds.
- Is it worth donking out here for balance? I mean, i don't think we're getting anyone to fold any pair if they have it.
Turn: A (6BB, 5 players)
Checked to Hero who bets. Seat6 folds, Seat8 calls, Seat2 calls, Seat3 calls.
River: T (10BB, 4 players) [rake will be 1.25 BB + tip]
Seat2 checks, Seat3 bets, Hero...?
