Main V has 125 to start hand, I have him covered
MP 1 limps, I'm in CO with QJ o and raise to 13, pretty much my standard open with 1 limper when I'm in late pos., SB calls.
(41-rake) Flop is 9 10 J, with two suited cards
MP1 now donk leads for 15...this is a spot I'm usually unsure how to play
...we don't want to get blown off our hand, but taking the pot down now - with the worse case scenario being a call, given my equity, makes a raise seem like a good play? Thoughts? I'll put the outcome in the spoiler.
I decided to raise to 45..SB folds, MP 1 calls, then leads the bricked turn for his remaining 67 or so, so now it's 67 to me to win 198, I actually folded - realizing I'm almost never ahead and the pot odds don't work for a call if I have to hit one of my 8 outs, even then I could be chopping, or loosing, he did show J 10
A simple hand , but a spot that seems to come up often enough.
