      I decide to just donk out turn for value + protection. Do we have to call river here?

      Hello jdnismo,

      Flop: I'd prefer to donk out myself and try to find out where we stand with our TP.

      As played
      Turn: Yep, donking should be fine, to protect from any kind of draw.
      River: Rather just Check/Fold, with such a move they are shoving a pretty strong hand and also our kicker ain't that great.

      Best regards.
