      Do you even understand why you are betting flop and turn?

      My line would be to c/c Flop and fold any turn except a blank 6 or 8. If it goes check check it's ok. I then give up on any 4 card flush. I think you are thinking of betting for protection.

      HOWEVER, note that protection mainly applies to strong hands. Who cares if he sucks out with his KQ with the K of hearts? We don't really mind folding our shitty hand anyway. What we want to do is to reduce variance, induce a single bluff bet and try to get to showdown as cheaply as possible.

      Hello nipbourne,

      Why do you donk the flop? Why ain't ya letting him CB with his whole range which he could easily do. But of course if you do donk then no other way to play it.

      As played on the river well, practically it's up to you and how you see the opponent. Myself usually when I pick such a line as donk the flop & bet turn it would be for free showdown and I wouldn't plan to Call the river. :)

      Best Regards.

      Check/Raising would put you into tough spot on further streets where he could be calling with a draw and then hits a pair. Rather just Check/Call and keep his range wide and don't build it up.
