      First, villain is unknown (vpip/pfr/hands) with 16/5/46.

      Now, i always play different when i have top pair with no (or low) kicker so i'm wondering wich is the best play (fold of course). Should i donk the flop or check/call? I know my check/raise doesnt make sense.

      And if we donk the flop, how we play the turn? (if its a blank or scare card)

      Also, as played, what was the correct play on the turn?

      Heyhello Axe,


      I would lead this flop yes for value, it is not called donking since no one has iniative :)

      c/R this board just overplays your hand: What worse hand is going to call you??

      On the Turn I would bet yes as played. The river is check and decide mostly as played

      Best regards,
      Gerv
