      No stats on the villain. Would it be a good idea to donk out on the Turn ?
      Was my fold on the River ok, considering his fast and big bet ?

      unless player is really tight pre-flop I would most of the times 3-bet AJ for value against BU steal. This makes imo my hand easier to play. If you don´t c/r flop then I don´t see reason why you should bet out turn. If you think your hand is the best then c/r flop or betting out yourself 2 or 3 streets should be better option than c/c flop, betting blank turn. I would likely bet out river myself. Since Q is overcard to 88-TT I think he would not bet there too often for value with worse hands, he may sometimes bluff, but more often he should call my 1$ bet with showdown value.
      If I check then I would prefer c/c with showdown value. After giving up turn he might easily bluff overcard on the river

      best regards,
