      BTN: 104.52 BB
      SB: 105.08 BB
      BB: 118.76 BB
      Hero (UTG): 100 BB
      MP: 294.92 BB
      CO: 100 BB

      SB posts SB 0.4 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has A:spade: K:spade:

      Hero raises to 3 BB, fold, fold, BTN calls 3 BB, fold, fold

      Flop: (7.4 BB, 2 players) 6:spade: 4:spade: J:diamond:
      Hero bets 5 BB, BTN calls 5 BB

      Turn: (17.4 BB, 2 players) 8:spade:
      Hero bets 10 BB, BTN raises to 31.04 BB, Hero calls 21.04 BB

      River: (79.48 BB, 2 players) T:diamond:
      Hero checks, BTN bets 65.48 BB and is all-in, Hero calls 60.96 BB and is all-in

      Hero shows A:spade: K:spade: (Flush, Ace High) (Pre 71%, Flop 86%, Turn 100%)
      BTN shows A:diamond: 7:diamond: (High Card, Ace) (Pre 29%, Flop 14%, Turn 0%)
      BTN wins 0 BB
      Hero wins 191.36 BB

      124 hands, VPiP 25, PFR 16, FCB flop 11, turn raise 2/2.

      Is my line ok? His low FCB tells me he is floating often, and turn is ideal for him to bluff raise, so I called and let him bluff one more time on river. Is it better push turn, or call donk river? If he has flush I win anyway, so I wanted to win against flush and bluffs.

      Turn decision is very simple.

      If he only has value here, shove when you have the nuts and hope you cooler him, before any bad card comes on the river.

      If he has air in his range, we have pretty much the best hand to slowplay. Having the King of spade too blocks out value combos from his range, making his turn raising range weaker and more air heavy. That makes flatting better.

      Calling Turn then Donking River doesn't even make any sense. Why do you want to let him see the River? It also doesn't really make any sense as a bluff.

      It's basically this
      1) Do you want to let him bluff?
      2) Or do you think there is more value in shoving and extracting max value from worse value hands?
