Nice video. Thank you. I have a question about post-flop play: Does Snowie take into account the pre-flop aggressor for post-flop play? Does Snowie tend to "check to the pf raiser?" Does Snowie believe in donk betting? I struggle with Snowie's recommendations for leading out on the flop vs checking. Thanks... Terry
Hi Terry, Thanks for your question. Yes, PokerSnowie takes into account the pre-flop aggressor for post-flop play. Normally PokerSnowie avoids donk bets and checks to the raiser. However, it depends on the exact situation. If the board texture changes significantly, like a fourth straight card appears or something similar, so that it is less likely that the opponent will continue his aggression, PokerSnowie likes to donk bet. This can happen also on the flop, if 3 small cards are on the flop, which have probably missed the range of the preflop aggressor.
