      Do I fold on the river? I feel like if I have him beat he is going to check-call or fold. His riverdonk looks like he hit something good.

      Hello,

      Preflop raising is fine.

      Postflop looks good.

      Flop and turn bets are good.

      I'm not folding the river against this bet here. All the draws missed and he could bet like this with some weirdly played Qx.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Exactly. A draw completed + a passive guy donks all of a sudden -- a good hint that our one pair is not the best hand anymore.

      How about 65hh, or just 65 if he likes playing gutshots on the flop?

      I don't think people are betting Qx here...not after we showed so much aggression. At best, they might just check/call. At least I wouldn't donk Qx there, it doesn't make any sense, we want a cheap SD with Qx.
