      Villain is quite laggy. 37/16 with an AF of 10.0 over 100 hands but is 44/0 in the BB and only has a 3-bet of 2.9%. I've seen him donk-fold several times already, hence the flop raise. I hit my draw on the turn, but given the raise on the flop, I became a bit scared of a boat, since AK and KQ are definitely both in his range. I feel like I probably missed out on a lot of value here though, given that so many non-boat Ks are in his BB calling range and he's likely not folding any of them ever. Should I have raised the turn here?

      Hi Ketaa,

      Welcome to the NL forum!

      I don´t mind your flop raise and give that Q, A and even J/T are not the best cards for you I prefer raising turn and playing for stacks. He would very often b/c there smt like AT or even QJ and would never going to fold Kx

      Since river is blank I would rather shove or raise there than call. He should bet bigger his boats and would b/c sometimes with Ax and always kx

      best regards,
