      Hello Tomaloc,

      He is representing a very narrow range on the river, it's 4x or really badly played Kx. :D But meanwhile could as well maybe even have missed FDs, so I don't mind the Call-down. More often I would assume him to Bet the turn rather than Check it behind.

      Best Regards.

      Hey,

      I was just reading some random HE's and I have a question here. Why not donk the turn?

      He's going to check behind very often and our hand is vulnerable;

      Cause you value-town yourself often times without a specific plan nor understanding the opponent? Like for example what would you do if he bets the river after your donk on turn + Check river. :D

      I think we can expect to see many check behind OTR. But as long he doesn't bet and the river isn't a spade Iguess we should ch/c.

      Nope, cause you can't really be far-far ahead in those spots vs the guy. Especially with his WTSD/WWSF. The idea on the turn should be to do it for free showdown. Instead hero's line is much better whilst we can be more sure that the guy is capable of bluffing there after Checking the turn. But of course even those guys may slowplay Kx and with decent dynamics I might even fold it right there.

      How different is it from this hand where you advise to donk?
