i felt my image was laggy
i was raising to get max value from a limped ace, i felt it unlikely he had a set considering i had flopped two pair but i guess when he comes back over the top hes either a donk with ak or has a set.....
so does everybody else hate my raise on the flop?
If you think the player was a call station then I like the check-raise because you can get a lot of value if he connected with the board. Against a good player I don't see how you can get a lot of value from worse hands taking such a strong line like you did. If he is a passive type as then I also don't think there is a big chance you are ahead when he suddenly gets aggressive and re-raises over your check raise.
this is exactly how i felt and what i did....he had 55 but whatever...onto the next one
Am I the only one who thinks there is room for a raise preflop? Serial limper and you wake up with A5o. Yes you're out of position but he's folding a ton. Anyway as hand was played, two pair is generally bad against a passive fish but it is quite hard to get away from. I'd chalk it off as a cooler tbh.
