      villain 18/6/0/52

      hey there, a few questions, if villain doesnt donk, is check behind best?
      i guess hes not calling worse.
      on turn, is checking back fine? or should i be betting to get him off Kx, maybe weak Ax? because i dont think his range is very strong or he would continue betting.

      If checked to I bet the flop to pick up the dead money and as a semi bluff. When we check back we only hit our flush ~20% of the time on the turn, and villain will bet the turn quite often if we show weakness by checking back and then we have to fold and give up when we could well have had the best hand, and even if we didn't we could have potentially made villain fold on the flop.

      On the turn we can check back, whether we have bet on the flop or called his donk, as the 2 changes very little and I doubt he's folding anything on the turn that he called on the flop. Looking at the 2 situations, I prefer a bet on the turn after he donks the flop rather than when he c/c the flop, but still I think the most likely line he's taking here is a c/c after the donk.

      River is standard obviously :)
