      Facing a donkbet here again. I have notes on this opponent that he donks few bbs/calls flop a lot, then donks/folds turn, so I assume it's not a strong move. Still, board is dry, so should I raise here? I have no idea what to do on turn or river. Thanks

      Hello,

      If you do not know what to do when you check back then bluffing the Turn might be a better idea for you. You can shove $2.7 there or just bet a bit smaller for example

      The reason is he is most likely going to check the River to you so you can go to showdown.

      Now I prefer playing like this or Call Flop, minraise Turn for free showdown
