      Heya! I cb beacuse of i got plenty of cards were i pick up EQ on and i can Keep barreling. I check behind the J cause i don't expect him to fold much on that turn card. On the river i expect him to donk all his Jx, I just don't see much value hands from his raising range therefor I call.

      I think ur play is fine. The river call is completely dependent on reads on whether he is capable of turningweak made hands into a bluff (midpairs) or not. The q is an good card for u to bluff at or perhaps even value bet ur qx so i really disagree with ur assessment that he should always donk his jx hands.

      So your bet call on the river must be based on your reads. I would always bet fold against a more passive player.

      i think the river bet is too thin without solid reads. only hands that you beat and will call is Q9- or 7x rest will just fold / bluff you off our hand.
