      He misses the CB, I donk turn for protection. Is it acceptable to half.bet/fold on the River? I was afraid that If I checked there he'd bet with ATC as my donk on turn looked so bluffy.

      standard play postflop once he checks back
      Is it acceptable to half.bet/fold on the River?
      - b/c river, since he would not take check back flop, call turn, raise river with better hands and most likely it should be bluff
