      Donk flop to both hope for a raise and pure fear of seeing the turn on his check behind on such a flop.
      Check on turn because every possible draw closed and in case he has no draw, I'd just scare him away.
      Block/Value on river.

      These strong points on flop OOP give me head aches.

      What does the part of his range that hit such bad turns do when you bet and what does it do when you check?

      Fear is not rational so it won't be good in poker decisions. :)

      But let me answer, in case I got it all wrong.
      You are saying that the part of range I'm "scared" of, would call if I bet and would bet if I check, therefore I want to check/raise.
      Right?
      (we are always talking on flop right?)

      How could I not see it.
      DAMN sometimes my brain SUX this is pure basics.

      You basically let him play waaay better when you bet because you will bet, he will call and play position very well. If you bet, you bomb with a raise and he won't really get the odds or will feel compelled to get it in on the flop. Also keep in mind he raised in MP so his range will hit that broadway board.. he is very likely to cbet many hands there imo.

      River is rly rly close imo but if you think he calls some QJ, QT, T9 type hands the bet is fine. :)
