      River: ($8.80) Q:heart: (2 players)
      SB bets $3.25, Hero ???

      With a rivered flush facing a donk bet, what is the best course of action? Villain is 36/11 after 30 hands 2.0 aggression, 6.00 river aggression. His WTSD is 50%

      you can also consider barreling on the turn, but with good draw+showdown value I think check is also fine. I would call river, since he may easily valuebet T or J high flush+ he can always bluff there

      best regards,

      First off all, why do you 3bet against such villain whos basicily unknown? 30hands is no sample to make any judgements on his wtsd or river aggresion.

      But I agree its an easy call on the river. If you we're a bit deeper, I think you could raise/fold there.
