      I think it's universally accepted to let some unknown guy who donks into you donk some more when you hold the nuts. On turn he donks again but I don't like the size, I want to get all my money in, unfortunately the ace and possible flush might scare him away so I wait another street. River brings another :heart: and kills any possibility of me stacking him off. How would you play this hand?

      Hi,

      I would minraise the Turn here to get stacks in comfortably on the river. He can still call with any Ace and any flushdraw

      As played you are being to greedy as I would bet $1 because he simply would have bet Q and K flushes

      Best regards,
      Gerv
