Default Lag donk bets

Here's another hand from my downswing that has me questioning my play. UTG in this hand is a loose calling station. BB is a LAGfish (50/19/3 type) and I've caught him 3-betting flop check-raises with A high after he raised pre-flop.

UTG limps, I raise A9o on the Button, BB calls.

Flop is Q[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] 9[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] 3[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img]

BB bets, UTG calls, I raise??

when ur ahead u dont have much of an equity edge when ur behind ur well behind

just calling also lets u fold really cheap sometimes. like if bb bets turn and utg raises or something

Raising is strictly superior to just calling, And I dont think you can fold on the flop here.

Folding was never a question against this guy. There are a lot of draws here and he would probably donk bet with a worse 9, in addition to top pair. With the other guy coming along with his whole range it felt like a standard raise to me.

Would you mind explaining why???

Abs, I'd call and most likely call down unless very scary cards fall on the turn and river.

Do yourself a favor and stop posting like this.

Explain why you think it is so.

Raising this flop is a mistake for the reasons Gehrig mentioned.

any other poster in this thread is strictly superior to just ThxBearl, And I dont think you can have people take you seriously if you keep making insanely pompous posts here.

I dont think raising would ever have entered my mind on this. Without the Ace kicker I probably would even consider folding this.
