      Hi coach,

      This is a pretty annoying hand because the only hand I can put him on that beats me which he d played like this is AT, maybe 66, A6s, A3s but I kinda expect him to x/r the turn instead of just call and donk the river if he has me beat OTT. So the only hand im worried about is AT, however, I cant put him on anything else period apart from a badly played FD.

      Maybe im wrong and he does do this with hands he already has me beat with before the river?

      Alex :)

      Preflop raising is fine.

      On the flop we have to decide on how much streets we want to put the money in - if we want to go broke on the turn then I'd bet around $2.2 and put the rest on the turn.
      The other option of course is the one you picked up.
      To be honest, considering that villain looks quite fishy, I'd prefer to take the first way and simply bet big on the flop and shove the turn.

      As played on the flop, I like your turn bet.

      I'm a little bit confused of his donk on the river. Judging by my personal experience, these guys usually represent what they have in these spots, so I think that most of the time we will be behind and I doubt that we'll be good 1 out of 4 times to justify a call.
