      Hello,

      Is 50% fold to 3b here?

      If so, I'd just prefer to call here and play postflop, rather than 3betting.

      On the flop I think cbetting is fine. We have position, and we can make better hands to fold, such as Kx/Ax, also we have backdoor FD and two overcards, and we can barrel some turn cards as well.

      What hands do you think he is donking on the turn and basically what is your river plan?
      Actually, I don't mind folding without having a plan and any idea of his range. What we have is a medium strength hand with a weak draw (since it's too obvious and we are drawing for the 3rd nuts).
      There are almost no river cards that we could call a bet.

      As played on the turn, I think the river cards is the best for us, so I'd just call here and make a note.

      Best,
      Plamen

      I think made flushes might donk on the turn.

      I needed 19 bb more and I could get it on the river with a small bet if I hit so I decided to call, planning to give it up on the river if I don't hit.

      If he doesn't bet river, and I don't hit, I can check behind with my TP.

      50% was WTSD. Although his fold to 3bet was also 50%(2)

      Hey,

      Well two hands aren't really a good sample so we could just say that we don't know almost anything about his fold to 3bet.

      I don't mind 3betting if you don't feel comfortable to call and play postflop.

      If you think he could be donking made flushes on turn I think we have to fold, because we are having less outs for our FD, and there are more Asxs/Ksxs that the lower.
      And you don't really get a lot of value if you hit.

      So without much information and with this particular hand I prefer folding and not investing 19bb to just fold the river.

      Best,
