      Villain is 35/13 AF4/WTS 33 in 40 hands my question here is if a raise on flop would have been better to see where I stand ,he donked the flop 2 out of 4 times so his donk bet could mean a straight draw, top pair or a T I don't know exactly.

      Hello alexgrapid,

      Nah, I don't really like raising on flop. We just isolating ourself against better hands. He will anyways more often fold there when he doesn't have a hand and maybe even if he has a strong hand he would 3bet us and then we just turned our hand into bluff. Otherwise I like the Check behind on turn but as well sometimes I even bet there, depending on the opponent. This time you could as well consider betting, although going for pot control and as well bluff-induce is fine as well. River is a call, he may still try to bluff us out while having such a AF.

      Best regards.
