      vs an unknown i would definitely raise the flop to protect vs flush draw.

      As you check called the flop why do you then donk the turn when a flush draw completes?

      River if you wouldn't call a raise/shove i'd check call

      Hi Rahica,

      Instead of calling flop and donking turn, on a scare card, why not just ck/raise the flop for pure value?

      As played I'd bet/fold as well. I don't want to check and a scare Kx checks back (because of our weird line).
