      Hi!

      Villain is 70/5 0.5 AF 45 wtsd, a huge calling station.

      Should I raise his donk, or calling is fine? If yes, check turn unless I hit? Probably he is not folding anything on flop.

      Thanks

      Hi,

      Raise flop, since you have too much equity against anything, and he can easily b/f flop smt like 44 or if he b/c then c/f turn.
      So my line would be raise flop and bet turn.

      I disagree with you. If he is a calling station, then wouldn't it be better do c/r flop, and cbh turn to realize our full equity? I think it will be very hard for the villain to b/c flop and then c/f the turn. So, imo, we would have to barrel the river as well, for him to fold his draws/low pairs, and putting ourselves in a situation to have to 3-barrel as bluff vs a calling station is never good.

      Is my reasoning flawed?

      You explanation is fine, if you think he would never fold turn better hands you should check back, but I think most of the times if I have there for example AQ players would min-bet/fold flop or to strong turn bet worse hands than Qx that spot, so you should always have there fold equity. And on the river you don´t really have to bluff against calling stations. If you put him on draw I think small bet would also do the job (although you´re ahead most draws)
