      UTG: $10 (100 bb)
      MP: $10.85 (108.5 bb) 11/08/2.2/1.3/27/95 Agg Freq 28
      CO: $1.68 (16.8 bb)
      BTN: $1.92 (19.2 bb)
      SB: $9.90 (99 bb)
      Hero (BB): $17.77 (177.7 bb) 25/16/7.0/0.0/32/56

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 8 8
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.30, CO folds, BTN calls $0.30, SB calls $0.25, Hero calls $0.20

      Flop: ($1.20) 5 5 8 (4 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, MP bets $0.82, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.82

      Turn: ($2.84) 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP checks

      Should I donk bet here? I do expect every Ppocket pair higher than 8 to bet. Considering how tight he is he could have JJ+ easily that will stack me off. So which of these lines do you think is best.

      1. Donk Bet Turn/Shove River
      2. Check/Raise Turn
      3. Check/Call Turn Donk bet shove river.

      River: ($2.84) 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.60, MP calls $1.60

      Hi maheepsangari,

      Even though we have the board locked I think donk betting is the way to go here to build the pot and not give our opponents the chance to check back on this flop (MP will check without an overpari imo).

      So I'd chose donk bet (80-90 cents since i don't want to scare out fd's, sd's) and continue betting turn/river.
      Btw, as played I think check raise is better since we can expect the nit to stack off JJ+ for the most part so the moment to raise is right now.

      Best regards.
