      This is the last of the hands. I hope I haven't posted too many/non important ones. Like I said this session was pretty weird for me.

      No stats on villian

      I ended up just checking the flop because I thought donking out first could leave me open to a re-raise, and I wanted to see the turn, so c/c seemed like the best way to control the pot.

      Since he checked on the turn as well, and the ace came on the river, I was pretty sure I was ahead.

      Betting the flop then /c the turn rules out AK, and I feel he could quite easily be drawing on that flop (maybe to the hearts, unlucky for me).

      Went for quite a thin value bet on the river, hoping to maybe get a call, but I feel almost all hands he hasn't bet on yet aren't going to call the river.

      Could this be a time to /c the river and hope for a missed draw bluff?

      Hello Jim4rdo,

      Flop: You can't donk the flop while you were PFA, basically you can CBet here and that would be likely the play I would do and CBet such a board with nutFD and overcards. While we could easily even have fold equity here and even if not then you can still re-evaluate further streets.

      As played
      Turn: As you played it passively then continue here as well.
      River: And yes, rather make a smallish value-bet than Check and let him Check behind. There ain't that many missed draws while you already hold 2 cards of FD.

      Best regards.
