      Hi, carrapa!

      If he was major donk I'd bet bigger both flop and turn. The board is drawy and those players don't usually for pairs OR draws so we need to get value.

      If we have the read that he never ever folds of course we have a value raise, but in most cases I'd just call his bet. I might raise in some other cards like a paired 3, maybe a 2 or a 4 (cards that don't combine with the flop and thus don't improve his range that much).

      Especially once the J hits I'm not raising that river. What can he call with? We only beat a few Ax (since a chunk of them made 2 pair) and the J combines with the board giving two pairs to JT and completing some draws. So we need a bit of a read, for example that he never folds any paired Ax no matter what, and might even call with your raise with T9 (the J hitting demoted his bare Tx to third pair). Then your river line is "ok". Mind that we beat 6 Ax (A2, A4, A5, A6, A7 and A9) and lose to also 6 of them (A3, A8, AT, AJ, AQ and AK).
