      I really have no idea why I called his flop bet. Thought he was just bluffing, since he'd been playing very aggressive. I also have some outs so ...

      Raising the turn would just tell him I have the A, so I called

      Was betting for value on the river.

      I think that calling flop and turn is ok but rather than raise the river I would just call. You're either way ahead or way behind at this point so I think it's best to just call.

      If you wanted to get all fighty then I think a raise on the turn would have been better to protect against\get value from a random Q or T looking for a straight and hands like KQ\KT which might like to call.

      Hello Yeodan,

      Basically I'd just raise it right on flop while such a donk usually shows weakness rather than strength. And as played, what worse hands do Call you on river when you decide to raise? I'd basically just Call there.

      Best regards.
