How do you know they have 88-TT when they fold to your reraise?

Because I make observations about hands that I'm not involved in. Holla.

Well how do you know what anyone has once they fold?

Because the player who made the original bet often doesn't fold and the hand ends up at a showdown. That doesn't mean they pushed, of course. They may call and then comes the turn, blar de blar.

Curtains, you've played long enough to understand the psychology of the donk. You must get into their donk brain:

"Hmmm. I called with my pair of 9's. But this guy might have a big pair. He raised preflop. And now he's betting! I don't want to lose all my money here to QQ-AA again (as I've done 15 times the past two weeks). Lemme raise a little to see if he has AK or AQ. He'll surely fold, maybe call. Uh-oh, he reraised all-in. He must have a big pair."

Folds.

This was exactly my logic, although I do see a lot of validity in checking behind.

I figured him for TT and he did fold.

It takes one to know one, and I definitely know donks.

I really doubt that he had TT. Must be the worst player ever.

Anyway real quick before I go, I am not saying that betting is bad or wrong or anything, however I would often check. The stronger my opponent is, the more likely I am to simply bet out the flop.

Anyway just wanted to give some reasons for making a play that no one seemed to be considering!
