      Hello!

      I opened from the BU with AJs and got called. I hit an A on the flop and decide to just call his donk bet. On the turn I bet because I think he gave it up by checking, but also for value and protection against a flushdraw. On the river I just checked behind. Is there any sense in betting the river? Did I play the hand correctly?

      I saw him playing just 9 hands since then with stats 50/0, so he was unkonwn to me.

      Hello Alleen86,

      Betting the turn is definitely fine, we are trying to protect from draws and as well getting value from weaker hands. And the river is kinda close, for the reason that he is a station I might even bet the river, although when you decided to skip the value-bet it ain't wrong either. At least you get to see his hand and might get some valuable information.

      Best regards.
