      he is donkbetting a lot
      flat 4 bet with jj floped set and trap KK on turn
      he likes to play suited cards

      Flop- call donk bet or raise and how much
      turn- if i raise flop how much to bet or give up
      river- hard decision for me, seem like value bet, could he bet naked A or bluff missed draw

      a typical way of playing a draw... I would play the same way as you did probably.

      Hello weedo25,

      Flop: I'd even raise bigger here to get protection, ~$1,50.

      As played
      Turn: I'd still bet bigger, ~$2,40. There are still a lot of value from any kind of draw and also TP type of hands.

      As played
      River: Since he is kinda unknown to us, I think calling should be fine, sometimes he might as well bet into us with weaker pairs, maybe even with weaker 2pairs and maybe even missed draws. Unless I have more stats and a good reason not to Call then I am calling. Also you can take a note on him how he did play his draw, although it might look standard but still. :)

      Best regards.
