      Hello!

      I'd bet 2/3 on flop and turn, as we want our opponent to call with worse. Bigger bets usually make them fold worse and continue with hands that usually beat you. And betting 2/3 makes river 1/2 donk easier for you to call as it costs less! ;)

      I'd bet 2 streets there too, as flush-draw is probably just calling you and you need protection against overcards.

      On river it's a tough spot, 1/2 donk looks more like a valuebet there. He could easily have KJ in his range, maybe even A4s. If you had reads on him that he can bluff river or bet with air, I could call, but otherwise it's most likely fold.

      Hi,

      I call since I think theres a large FD his range here or even weak suited Jx.. and only few hands I considered will beat me.. and his river bet doesnt really look like a value to me seems to be either a bluff or block there..

      i would call river here. what strong hands does villain have that wouldn't check raise flop or turn on such a coordinated board? given the odds on the river i would call, and expect to see miss fds/sds and sometimes even worse Jx hands here that dont know what to do

      Hello windar021,

      Kinda of close on the river cause his donking range obviously may contain AJ/KJ type of holdings, less likely weaker Jx. Not many worse PPs also donk there this way. Not even sure how often he is willing to bluff with such a sizing, therefore if we don't expect him to be bluffing then rather fold the river.

      Best Regards.

      I would expect him to protect the hand at least on the turn w a better J here..

      I think with Jx he is mostly check calling. I would think missed draws or things that suddenly became strong, like 4. Not sure he will slow play sets on turn but I have seen it happen. To make it short I think he can have bluffs and strong hands at the same time. Not sure with which frequency, but at 3:1 a call might be close but the right thing to do... :f_confused:

      (well, I just noticed that the A 2 d wouldn't mind a check call on turn, but I don't see why not check call again river...however people do that)
