I think I'm turning into a wuss.

Should I be raising flop to get it in? If I raise flop to ~$1.40 and he calls and flush hits on the turn, whats my play?

I dwelled for an age and called, thinking that blind vs blind this doesn't have to be the flush all the time.

(it was)

Usually when people make huge overbets they have the nuts

Has some video come out that promotes donking into the preflop raiser? I noticed it yesterday, but today its happening even more! Both Tags and fish. One Tag was doing it very well yesterday. The fish are doing it really stupidly. I've played about 5k hands in the last 24 hours, and I'm fairly sure I'm not imagining it.

Ive been doing it from the BB alot more in the past 2 weeks and I find it insanely profitable (seems like it is - haven't looked at stats yet). It ususlly only requires the 2-3 barells. I've stopped doing it with value hands as they are folding too much.

No but I was watching one about overbets today. It seems to be way more popular than it used to be when I last played! I still haven't looked one up as I always have like 2nd pair or some crap when they do it and I still share your opinion that at low stakes its the nuts.

I genuinely thought this was a decent bluff and he'd fold almost all of his range here. Little did I know how wide his range was...

Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.50 BB (6 handed) - Full-Tilt Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

MP ($61.40)
Hero (CO) ($50)
Button ($71.90)
SB ($59.20)
BB ($70.90)
UTG ($50.25)

Preflop: Hero is CO with A, 7
1 fold, MP bets $2, Hero calls $2, Button calls $2, 2 folds

Flop: ($6.75) K, Q, 10 (3 players)
MP checks, Hero checks, Button checks

Turn: ($6.75) 4 (3 players)
MP bets $4.50, Hero calls $4.50, 1 fold

River: ($15.75) 6 (2 players)
MP checks, Hero bets $11, MP calls $11

Total pot: $37.75 | Rake: $1.85

Results:
MP had 4, 6 (two pair, sixes and fours).
Hero had A, 7 (high card, Ace).
Outcome: MP won $35.90

You're not repping too many made hands when you check the flop and flat the turn. I don't think you bet the river for value with much of your range that takes that line and have way more bluffs. He should be calling you with any pair really.

Blind Limper, as emmet said fold pre but also, bet more on the turn, there are 2 flush draws out there and so your river shove wont be an overbet

I knew i was gonna get slated for posting that! I think A9o is ok to open utg when you are playing against monkeys like the guy who stacked off to me. The table was lol bad. I would normally fold it and open A9s most of the time. Bet sizing on the flop and turn are poor enough looking back. I honestly didnt think i would have be able to get the money in over 3 streets cause we were so deep when i bet the flop. I should have thought about it a bit more.

Thought it might have been a miss click then i was like wait a minute he couldn't have miss clicked three times. The way i am running at the minute the A would have hit on the river and i would have got another urge to kill a penguin.
