      Final Pot: $10,60

      Was really thinking to raise the flop or not, I know donks usually mean weak (mid pairs/draws). I think my hand is strong enough for a A/K/Q card if it hits his pair. By raising the flop I value bet bigger on the later streets though. Was wondering how my play was and what to do on the river.

      Hello ragney,

      Just raise it on flop, we need also to build up the pot and not give him free cards for to draw. Otherwise, I guess I'd make the crying Bet/Fold there, it just so looks like a better hand, which we don't beat. :(

      Best regards.
