      Hero shows three-of-a-kind, eights (8h 8c)

      Hero wins with three-of-a-kind, eights (8h 8c)

      Turn: I donked here as I really didn't want him checking behind and another diamond coming down.

      And looking at the hand now I don't know why I didn't bet the river. At the time I think I was hoping he would bet out with a missed draw that he could have called the turn with.

      Thanks for feedback.

      Hello Jeffers16,

      The problem with donking on turn is that if we get raised we would be in trouble, therefore I'd rather Check/Call the turn and then bet river for value if he Checks behind. As played, yes I guess you still could throw a small value-bet on river.

      But overall sometimes I might as well bet the turn if we are against more passive opponents.

      Best regards.
