Seriously, I can't even wrap my head around BB's play here. I raise, CO calls, SB re-raises. With 99. And such a huge amount too . Okay, then SB calls. With 87 suited. What?

Comes back to me, I shove obvious, SB calls (maybe because he feels he's already committed? Okay, seems somewhat logical but he HAS to know he's dominated at this point.

But then BB insta-calls. With 87 suited?

I just cannot wrap my head around the plays these donks make.

Not complaining, this isn't a bad beat story because I won the hand, but I did sweat it as they both had outs.

Cant een bothered with this, for the 100 times its micros Confused
Why you keep over and over ask these questions while so many players just play micros to donk some money.
I played micros in the past when i had bad tilt, just basicly shove every hand for 20min then stop.

Mate its micros Smile

I can't explain the massive raise but 87s isn't a bad hand to go into a three way pot with. I wouldn't do it with such a big pot. But think about the type of hands the two of you before him could possibly do that with. Say for example, one has ak the other aj, suddenly 87s doesn't look so bad. Maybe he thought he had clean outs, and you guys didn't or maybe he thought he was drawing heavier, eg you two having suited cards but not suited connectors.

I agree 87 s isn't bad pre flop. I usually play like middle pair. But all in preflop ??? Depend on feeling.
For me that's not donk play. Even I ever saw real pro go all in preflop with 78s, and he won !!
Sometime we just got middle card, never high card for 1 or 2 hours, what will you do ? never bet with medium card ???
