      Semi-Bluff CBet on flop (he does fold a lot to CBet), felt too strong on turn to fold due to TPTK and his stack and was a bit puzzled by his donk, I thought it was an attempt from him to stop me from betting big so that he could see another card for his probable FD.
      Thoughts?

      Hey,

      Pre flop looks good.

      On the flop, I think we should try to fold out equity shares rather than folds or good flush draws, so I would bet around 3.50$ we are also pretty shallow because he is a shorter stack and we have inflated the pot.

      I think because we are in position, checking the flop allows us to win the pot on spades, K, J vs his middling cards, hes also less likely to call a bet with a flush draw on the turn than he is on the flop.

      So I think check back and bet turn >>> bet flop.
