      BB bets $2.72 and is all-in, Hero folds

      I regard the donk bet as weak and I am willing to play for stacks on the flop. After his d/c flop, check turn I think he either has a weak MP or a weak draw.My plan is to bet turn, checke behind river UI. I dont see him play c/r turn really but I would still go broke there. After he donks the river I dont think there is much I can beat in his range.
      Would a check behin on the turn be better, can I profitably call a c/r on the turn and is the river fold standard?

      with showdown value I dot mind really your check behind on the turn, since then you can basically call any river bet and you has still 15 outs to improve against Kx hand which he would not going to fold.

      If you just had A high flushdraw then I like barreling more o get him also fold 9x, 6x and 88/77 type hands.

      As played I would likely call river. Unless he has there 8c5c or 8cTc I don´t see how 7 could improve his hand, he would never going to shove there Kx and I think he may easily shove his missed draws.

      best regards,
