      Villain is 55/9, AF: 1.7, SD:32, 159h
      *bets MP F/T, ck/ck river
      *donks 1bb f/t, POT on river w/ air


      Betting big for value/protection. Could go even bigger.

      I had to bet bigger. He`s calling with flop draws anyway. If I bet PSB here, it leaves another PSB on the river.

      I think he would donk bigger with a flush. Looks like some kind of a block bet. Calling is an easy choice here, but should I raise small and fold to re-raise, to get value from Kx, 2pair?

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop/turn: as you said already the bets could be larger.

      River: His donk is a block bet or a nut hand trying to induce. If it's a block bet he may fold to a raise so I would most likely just call (until we have a bit more info). Remember that most of the time his range is also going to have a lot of 88-JJ type hands.
