      I would either raise/fold turn -> check back river or call turn and call most rivers.

      He can lead there draws, air, worse pairs and if you just call you can never be sure where you´re at. Some players would lead turn two pairs, sets or straights, but that is usually not that big part. Also 76s would likely just b/c and you don´t have to worry him betting big again on the river

      best regards,

      I think after he x/call flop, and donk turn we very often can expect a bet on the river as well, and i don't think it's too good of a play to just call down with JJ here, more often then not we`ll be behind.

      So not being able to call a decent river bet was my main argument for not calling.

      Raising, would mostly be an information raise and sometimes we`ll get just called by pair+draw hands - so raising probably would have been the better option... raise/fold turn | if called, check back river.

      At first sight i though that by raising i`m only isolating my self vs better hands, what do you think about that? we can get called by pair+draw hand, i don't think anything worst than that would call, so that could justify a raise?

      I folded - witch very well could be too weak in such spot.

      Raise/folding turn against unknown is fine.

      The only question mark would be around how he reacts with pair+draw or draw versus a raise (does he 3-bet or call). Normally people just call when faced with a raise so I would be fine raising and if called playing the river and if 3-bet to just fold.
