      This is one of the hands where I tried not turning QQ into a bluff. Villain is a nit on would probably fold any worse hand to a 3bet. What is my plan on the river? Can I call again? Is this a good spot for a small donk-bet?

      What about my overall plan for the hand? I wanted to let him bet any kind of air against busted draws as well as his Js, but on the river, I don't think I can bluff-catch all that much against a nit like him?

      Hello awishformore,

      Unfortunately not, I doubt that he has a lot of bluffs either on the river, with A high he just Checks behind and some mediocre hands. Therefore rather seems like thin value-bet.

      But now again if we can lay-down for the given odds? :D Mainly would depend how we see the opponent with his CBetting overall, although I don't see him having there a lot of bluffs.

      Best Regards.
