      PF: Steal from BU

      Flop: Relatively dry board, I call Villain's donk as I don't see any value in raising.

      Turn: Blank turn, Villain bets less than 1/2 pot. I'm thinking of raising for value and then getting a free showdown. But with my kicker, I think I'll just fold out all Qx and value-owned myself vs his Kx which out-kicks me. And there's only one obvious draw which is JT.

      But.. Thinking more deeply, I also don't think a TPGK will play so weakly by betting less than 1/2 pot. So he's probably holding Qx or a straight draw.

      River: I would have taken a free showdown if not for making 2pair. I now value bet against all his Qx and Kx.

      Should I have raised on Turn? Is it considered thin value?

      Super standard. Nice hand. Raising the turn is just pointless. Forget abt such plays, they achieve nothing (are u raising for value or as a bluff)?

      No worse hand calls and no better hand folds
