      River: ($50.25, 2 players) T:diamond:

      When the guy donks small, I usually put him on a weak J or a draw, so I raise for value.

      On the turn, his check/raise shove seems a bit weird. It doesn't feel like he would do that with two-pair or better. It feels more like a hand that has caught something additional on the turn, like fd + pair or pair + sd. I'm afraid of J5 and maybe A4/46 sometimes, but I think his range is heavily weighed towards single pair hands I have beat.

      How do you interpret such a shove after the flop action?

      I think he usually has there two pair or better. He may sometimes have 5x with flushdraw, so there can be argument b/c turn, but since you don´t get that good pot odds and your hand is not that strong then I would prefer b/f

      best regards,

      I have never seen any player play this way with two-pair against me thus far. They usually just call down or min-raise in my experience. Is it something that happens often?

      Hello awishformore,

      Could be anything, nutFD with the A:sx hand and of course very strong hands while the board is super drawy. I'd rather just Bet/Fold it with my TP while we just have 9 hands on him.

      I tend to think that he is more often towards a made hand which is stronger than ours than just a Jx. If he had the Jx then why not just get it in on the flop? The hope what I see here is some kind of nutFD as A:sx hand which goes for maximum fold equity.

      Have seen so often people taking such a line as min-donk on the flop and then 3bet vs our raise which usually is a sign of strength. This line often times looks the same for me if he picks such a line.

      Best Regards.
