      He donks me on the flop and I think a call is pretty standard. He checks the turn which makes me think he has some kind of PP so I bet for value and to protect incase he has donked air/overcards. River seems to be a blank and he donks small again. I decide to just call.

      Would it be better to just check back the turn and call a river bet? My turn bet is with the intention of getting a free showdown so I'm kind of annoyed when he leads at me.

      Hello Meemawuk,

      Well, I actually don't like that much the bet on turn. I mean you can't really protect from much and can't get much value from a lot worse either. I'd rather take pot control to get called on river by hands like 6x or whatsoever weaker pairs/PPs.

      But as played He ain't bluffing there. :P You can give it up even for that given odds.

      Best Regards.
