      villain has highish cbet so decided to float and lead the turn on any card.

      K gives us NFD and NGS,

      with his min raise, we get like 3.5:1 odds. can we say we have enough implied odds since he is pretty much commited?

      Or should i have just folded to his minraise?

      Hello gxtwo,

      Flop: I'd rather Check/raise it right here rather than Call cause there ain't going to be many donk cards which are going to be very good.

      As played
      Turn: Well, what are you trying to represent? Would even any strong hand donk here? Would you donk with Kx? But for the given odds I wouldn't fold it either. Not that I am saying that donking is totally off here but want to get your thoughts on that.

      As played
      River: Do you think he is capable of bluffing? Cause you just beat bluff here, even Ax is turned into bluff.

      Best Regards.

      Usually I just take the line, call flop lead turn. Against high steal and high cbet.

      Guess I can't really rep much after we just call the flop, where as if we x/r flop we can rep straights and sets.

      And if my plan is to take the pot after he cbets, I might aswell do It on the flop, rather than allow him to gain equity on the turn with a hand he would have folded to a flop raise.

      With his range so wide, I would think he would fold a lot of hands to a donk with the K,

      When he raises the turn I think we get good implied odds for our draws.

      I don't like my river play here.... Should have just called for the draw, and left the river if I didn't hit.

      I had no reads if he was capable of bluffing :(

      But you would never donk with having the King. Nor I doubt that you would donk like that with sets cause you would want to protect your hand bigger, don't you? And mostly even Check/Raise the flop as I mentioned already.

      Also happens the thing when you just think that you will be ahead on the river and call it down but really, what do you beat there?
