      You cbet that flop whether you have ace or not. You can still bet the turn, as some Tx hands and weaker pp's might call you off and you might even have a cheaper SD.

      AS played, donking the river is absolutely the most horrible thing to do, Q hits his range thereq quite well and your line has been weak so far, so by betting you let your opponent to bluff you out.

      Hello BigAl123456,

      You could still CB it for value here. :) Most likely from weaker PPs and then reevaluate further actions. It will be difficult to understand where you stand if you go into Check/Call line.

      The same you should answer the river, if you went for pot control or passive approach then why donk the river? How many worse hands do you expect to get paid? Do you think he is capable of bluffing/slowplaying?

      Best Regards.
