Default INAPPROPRIATE

so at the advice of nath and others to stop being such a bankroll nit, i took my first drunken shot at 2/4 last night. thanks guys, I love gettin stuck like $1100 in 20 minutes and staying up till 6 am to get even...

villain is of the donkish variety. no stats cause [censored] stats, they're gay. he's pretty loose pre but does more calling than raising.

it eases the pain

I dunno, thought it was worth discussing. something that I dont think I've ever done before and wondering whether its a better play than just cbetting/stacking off

eithers fine probably against a donk. I think a good player will check AK behind on this flop like 100% of the time.

taking shots = good
taking shots after drinking shots = not so good.

Don't play when drunk. I figure you know this...I like the comment about AK, I've gotten [censored] a few times trying to get tricky like you did. And better hands usually are only calling you. If you bet into him, he may push with a pp that you beat. Hopefully he's not one of those tricky players who don't four-bet high pp's preflop.

okay so basically I posted this hand cause I took a weird line that I'm not really sure about. I guess its not that bad or anything and probably good for mixing it up/balance etc...

my thoughts at the time... if he has AA/KK/QQ I'm gonna get stacked bet/calling the flop anyways. my line looks weird enough that he might make a bad call with a pp 66,77,99,TT since a lot of people CRAI there with AK. I dunno how much value I can squeeze out of him if he has a pp either, probably 1 street but hes gonna be facing a turn push here on a blank like 95% of the time vs. me

obviously downfall is risking a free card to AK/AQ but my read was that villain was a donkydonk and would take a stab at it w/ any pair and probably overcards

just looked like a good spot for it and was curious what others would have to say.

thanks for the comments
