      Hello Avatars91,

      While there ain't gonna be a lot worse Jx hands anyways which going broke nor any worse hands then rather just Call the flop and reevaluate it on the turn.

      Best Regards.

      If I call the flop, what should my plan for the turn be? When do I donkbet and when do I attempt a check raise?

      Why should you donk? Why should you Check/Raise?

      Why should you donk?

      I honestly don't know. I have no idea what someone would be raising the flop with. If it is some sort of a PP that raised for protection against overcards and the turn is a blank I could bet to extract value since he would be likely to check behind for pot control.
      Why should you Check/Raise?

      I should check/raise if I am confident that he is going to bet the turn often enough.

      All in all, this time I'm sorry, but I really am not sure how to play this one on the turn :) I will have to ask you to help me out.

      Donking doesn't make sense cause you might get raised again and maybe should even fold your hand. But at the same time you might even get the odds for a Call if he bets small. If he doesn't have a strong hand you wont get paid much anyways nor there ain't many draws.

      Check/Raising is overplayed since you will rarely see a lot worse hands which pay you off.

      Would you really suggest a c/c, c/c line against this opponent? I mean, look at his stats. He is a complete fish. He can pay us off with worse.

      Please read my evaluation and don't ask the same questions over and over again, thanks. :)
