      Villain is 23/0 AF inf WTS 50 in 29 hands , and I got a read on him that he is donking the flop when he sees a pair and a high card . I should bet the turn for value and c/c river ???

      I think this is fine as played. I don't see much benefit in betting the turn -what worse hands call?

      Hello alexgrapid,

      Should be fine, although when the opponent ain't that aggressive or ain't unknown, rather a passive guy I'd just fold it on flop. Otherwise there aren't many worse hands which Call you anyways on turn, rather just Check behind and hope to be ahead.

      Best regards.
