      Hello benaars,

      Worst play you could ever pick here. Why do you donk the flop? Why do you Check/Call the turn? Do you ever think you get any implied odds being OOP with just FD?

      Best Regards.

      OK, I cannot answer those questions, it felt like the right thing to do, what should I have done INSTEAD?

      You should rather Check the flop and then reevaluate further actions. If you think the opponent has a very wide range then even Check/Raise the flop for fold equity while our hand is very strong vs his CB with FD+overcards.

      As played of course fold the river, you don't get the implied odds with just a FD.
