      The straight draw got there (68), and the only hands I can see him donkbet here are either drawing hands that spiked top pair on the river (JT, T8) or flop pairs that rivered two pair (9T, 7T).

      Alternatively this could be a badly played set or (that's if he's capable of making loose calls pre and donking a missed draw on the river) a missed gutshot (56,45).

      The bet is v. small, so I would always call.

      Against this range (sets - TT,99,77,33, 22, drawing hands that spiked top pair - JT,T8, flop pair that rivered two pair - T7, T9, straight- 86, missed gutshot - 65,54) we've got 53% equity so we can even call a pot sized bet.

      Even f he's not leading his 56, 45 (because, for example, he's passive) then all we beat is his drawing hands that spiked top pair - JT, T8. But nevertheless we've got 40% equity and can therefore still call a pot sized bet!

      I hope this is correct!

      Best

      Hello carrapa,

      Just shove the river vs his stack. :) He has enough of worse hands in his range.

      Best Regards.

      i thought about it, but if I got raised after my blockbet, I'd have to fold ?(

      A block bet would essentially be a shove as villain only has half a pot sized bet behind ($1.49). I'm shoving the river every time to be fair, yeah sometimes he'll show up with a set but a lot of the time he'll show up with random hands you beat (mid pairs, top pair, etc) when he calls and that's not accounting for the times he folds. Seems like an obvious value bet to me on the river.

      fwiw inlovewithamsterdam, villain isn't donkbetting but is betting in position after being checked too. Never folding to such a small river bet as played.

      Didn't even see his stack. Thanks DannyG13, just ship the river vs his stack. Vs full stack we could consider block-bet/Folding -> that's the idea of block-bet.
