      Should I bet/fold turn? When villain donk/calls I think he has a decent amount of 2pairs and sets that improve on the turn.

      Hey Riverdiver,

      I think you have a profitable bet on the turn here.

      Obviously it sucks if you get raised - but there is a decent chance villain 3bets flop with 2pair/set usually feeling they are strong enough to go broke with. Also if he did have one of these holdings I'd expect him to donk-bet flop larger rather than 1/3rd pot. 1/3rd pot more likely suggests weak-pairs/draws - so I think you miss value by not betting turn here.

      On river I think you can raise to 12bb and still expect to get called by worse, although you should keep your sizing very small on 4-to-straight textures generally speaking.
