      Villain-unknown.Dont really know how to respond to this pot donk bet but I dont like calling as I wont have any idead where I am and the boardis very drawy.I go for r/f although I hate this line.On turn I make top two and I see weakness in his check so I shove.What other lines could I have taken and what range can I put him on?

      I think he generally has there either:
      - air that he wants to take pot down, raising to that range seems kind of strange, since you´d rather let him bluff with worse hands
      - flopped set/two pair that he wants to protect, again raising to that range doesn´t seem right, since you´re not ahead
      - A high flushdraw. There you can raise but have to call shove
      - sometimes flopped flush where he also either wants value and/or protect his hands

      I think generally if you´re not plan playing for stacks call seems better and then evaluate on the turn. As played: easy shove on the turn he would call you down with worse hands
